i’m very sorry to report that my sweet pigeon is no longer with us. i spoke to the humane society this morning, and they said her wing was severely fractured, and there just wasn’t a whole lot they could do for her. she was euthanized.
thank you all for your comments and support on my previous post. i know that several of you had ideas about whether euthanasia would be necessary, and right now i don’t have the heart to google around and do the research, because i feel too sad about this poor bird. for right now i’m going to have to take my wildlife rehabber at his word, and maybe later i’ll look into it.
right now i’ll just focus on how, if she had to die, it was much better to die in a quiet, safe, painless way than to get run over by a car, or starve to death in the cold. *sniff*
