Just found this bird with a broken wing in my yard, just got off the phone with wildlife Victoria and they told me not to try and move it until someone gets there, is there anything I should do for it until then?
actually I just got a call back - they said since it's not a species native to Australia they're not allowed to help and the injury doesn't look recoverable, so the best thing to do is to drive it to a vet and have it put down.that's super fucked up and I'm pretty bummed about it, am I supposed to just let it die?
>>2940780Think about it this way. You can leave it to die horribly, in pain, scared and possibly picked off by predators away from it's flock. Or.you can end it's suffering. It won't get better. Horrible shit happens in nature. It will happen if you didn't notice but you did. If you can help, even to minimize it's suffering, why not?
either way it would have been a waste of money, just like a dingo or cane toad get it mate
>>2940777Bandage the wing and look after it
>>2940777Those things are fucking delicious. Very good tasting meat.

>>2940777You can save it and keep it as a pet. It looks like a super comfy bird to have.
>>2940790>You can leave it to die horribly, in pain, scared and possibly picked off by predators away from it's flock. >Or you can catch it like a predator, imprison it in fear, take it to a killing facility and kill it.Honestly just leave it out to die.
>>2940777Be a Google hero and figure out how to save it
>>2940915They are easy as shit to pluck though. Youve obviously never plucked one before.
>>2940973>Not just snapping its neck then and there
