PostSubject: Found hurt Pigeon, now what?   Sun Jul 03, 2011 2:26 pm

This morning I was taking a friend home and saw a pigeon in the middle of the road sitting there and not even moving when cars passed it. I'm a huge animal lover and just couldn't leave it, knowing it was definitely in danger of being hit.

I pulled up next to it, put on my flashers and got out to get him/her. Obviously it was really scared and ran under my car. Thankfully I was able to get it (in the midst of a lot of angry drivers!) and bring it home.

I have put it in a box with soft towels, water and crushed up wheat crackers to keep it somewhat confined so that it can't hurt itself. I think it's leg is broken?

With it being the holiday weekend (and a Sunday!) I've not been able to find a vet that is open, I also have to go out of town for work tomorrow afternoon and don't have anyone to take the bird that I trust will take care of it like I am!

I've not seen it drink or eat, it has pooped a couple of times and I'm keeping the light off and the box covered so that it feels safe.

Any help/advise/suggestions would be appreciated!!

Just an update - I have taken him to a wildlife rehabilitation facility and he is now safe and sound! They gave me his intake number for me to call and check in on him. :)

Happy 4th!

Hi Ambizzy,

Thank you so much for rescuing the injured pigeon, even in the face of angry drivers, and for managing to find immediate care for him! Thank You

For a professional, a broken leg is not difficult to set, and he should recover in approximately 3 weeks, after which he should be able to be released.
Very best wishes for yourself and for your rescue. Please keep us posted when you hear how he's getting on.

Welcome to Pigeon Angels. Hi there/Bye

Thank you for taking the time to stop and scoop up the little one.
Sadly, many would not have done that. Disappointed
You are a true pigeon angel. Pigeon angel


I'm glad you were able to get him to a rehab facility.
Would it be possible to get the name of the facility so we can add it to our list of contacts?

We would be very interested in kowing how he's doing.
