    I have a wounded crow that I found on the side of the road yesterday. It has its legs sticking out behind it and cant walk or fly. The rescue facility says it sounds like a pelvis fracture. He is very alert, eating well and pooping. Has anyone here had experience with pelvic fractures, or something that sounds like this have any ideas? Thanks!

    Have you tried to find a wildlife rehabilitation place that will take him? Not all of them are listed on the 'net but local vet offices have their contact info because they often the first to get called about injured wildlife.

    Just because a bird isn't endangered doesn't mean you shouldn't try and save it.

    http://www.cockatiel.org/articles/firstaid.html the best thing for you to do might be to bring the crow to an avain vet.

    It depends what condition it was in and how much pain it looked like it was in. Just because an animal can be saved doesn't mean it should be if it causes a great deal of pain, fear, and stress on the animal.

    It had a small wound and it looked a little neurological to me. Of course it had to be bottle fed and stimulated to pee and poo.
