I'm still very sad and upset. Late yesterday afternoon I was in the backyard putting bunny food out and noticed this pidge. Hes been hanging around a few days after all the others left, but it was different yesterday. He couldn't fly at all, I got ahold of him and brought him in. He was skin and bones..called hubby to get a carrier while I looked him over. First thing was open his mouth and look and smell for canker..I smelled necrotic flesh..oh crap...Then I checked him all over, and found a crusty, poopy blood dried wound between his leg and lower belly. Got that cleaned up with warm soapy water. The wound looked way to familiar to me. A perfect 22 pellet hole, now the bad part was, ,he was scared and pooped ,,but the poo was coming out the wound and not his vent! Plus the necrotic flesh smell was really bad. Double crap! I couldn't help him, I don't think even Liberty could have. We let him go peacefully to the rainbow bridge with the injection of " sleep liquid " Now, I want to know who is shooting? Could be anyone, anywhere...better not find out it's a neighbor.
