Birds that could not be saved

Unfortunately not every bird can be saved. Birds can arrive with horrific injuries whether through collisions with vehicles, barb-wire fences or being shot. After proper veterinary evaluation if the assessment dictates, birds will be euthanised. Prolonged suffering of birds is not an option.
