Ok so I admit this is such a weird story but true I swear. Last Thursday on the way home from work I saw a pigeon get hit by a car on the highway. It was flung to the side of the road and was flopping and flapping helplessly so I quickly pulled over and grabbed a shirt out of my gym bag and grabbed the pigeon. When I got him home I took him out to examine the injury. I was shocked that the pigeon was still alive. His skin had split across half his breast and the breast bone was exposed and the crop had been torn a hole the size of a quarter. So I was really thinking this pigeon was going to die but I figured I at least gave him a warm place to die rather than at the side of the road in the cold and rain. But on the off chance I could do anything I pulled out the betadine and scrubbed the wound and cleaned out the leaves and twigs and dirt. Dried the injury and with the only thing I had on hand, I used superglue on the hole in his crop to seal it up and then pulled what skin I could over the wound and superglued that in place. Then I gave him some water with antibiotics and crossed fingers. I had to do some minor repair a couple of days later when I noticed he was leaking when he was drinking. In his effort to stand he had torn open the crop again but it was a small tear so I once again glued it. So 7 days from the initial injury and he's able to stand on his own feet and shuffle around slightly. He's eating and drinking and actually seems like he's going to live. I just can't believe that this pigeon that I glued together is still alive. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the initial injury but here's a pic of him today. I know it looks really horrid but it's really quite an improvement over what he looked like when I found him. Anyway here's hoping he lives to be released back into the wild. My freaky little franken pigeon.
