Should I butcher a turkey after it was attacked and recovered

    My lone BBW from last year was attacked by a fox a few months ago. She had a wound on the breast and rear quarter. It has since recovered, but has been losing weight since before the attack.
    Is it safe to eat this bird at this point?
