The SPCA Serving Erie County’s Wildlife Department’s Recent Patients
On July 24th a Clarence resident called the SPCA’s Wildlife Department about an injured bird in her back yard. Turns out it was a Green Heron with a fractured tibiotarsus (a large bone in the bird’s leg). On July 27th our Wildlife Veterinarian Dr. Slote did surgery and placed a pin in the bird’s leg to help stabilize the bone so it can heal. The bird is doing well and we’re hopeful for a good outcome — its release back to the wild!
