06112019 Turkey Vulture - 1
We received a call on our rescue line stating that the Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control crew had picked up an injured turkey vulture late in the evening on June 10th. A Soarin’ Hawk volunteer picked up the very alert and feisty bird on Tuesday the 11th and transported it to Pine Valley Veterinary Clinic where Dr. Funnell will examine it sometime today. Turkey vultures are very large and cumbersome birds for one person to handle so the volunteer wasn’t able to tell what the injuries were, and nothing was noted on the FWACC paperwork, so stay tuned!
This turkey vulture was moved to our rehabilitation facility. It will be determined if he can recover enough to be released with his old wing fracture.
