Bird caught by a cat or dog
Birds that have been caught by a pet should be examined by Wild Nest Bird Rehab or an avian veterinarian with wildlife experience.
Even if the bird seems unharmed, the toxic bacteria housed in the mouth of cats can be lethal to wildlife.
Dogs can often cause internal injuries to birds.
Releasing a seemingly uninjured bird caught by a pet without an assessment may condemn the animal to prolonged suffering and death.
