Earlier this month, Tucson Wildlife Center admitted this raven after being found on the ground not able to fly. Coming all the way from Sierra Vista, one of our amazing TWC volunteers was willing to help with transporting the raven to our hospital. Upon arrival, the reason behind her not flying was clear as she was diagnosed with a compound fracture of the radius and ulna (forearm) of the right wing. This type of injury meant a difficult surgery was required in order to start rehabilitation. On the night of her arrival, our veterinarian was ready to go and able to conduct a successful surgery. Now in the early stages of rehabilitation and physical therapy, we’re all hoping for a full recovery and release as she slowly heals!
