    We found a vulture who's wing is broke and he's starving! We have him in a crate. Does anybody know someone we can care for him?

    Vet or SPCA will take injured wildlife and find carers, unless you are experienced it's not worth the risk trying to treat by yourself.

    There may be a wildlife rescue center in your area. The animal shelter should have contact information. They may also have you bring it there or even come get it to take it to the rescue.

    In the meantime, see if it will eat some raw chicken or egg yolk? maybe?

    That's great news! I know the saying "if you care, leave it there" (and call wild life rescue or DNR troopers) but in this case , it worked out perfectly! [​IMG]
