Unfortunately, radiographs revealed two fractures in the shoulder. The bird would never fly again and, if kept alive, it would be in pain for the rest of its life and was later determined the best case for this bird was to be euthanized.
The California Department of Fish and Game (Wildlife) is leading an investigation, hoping to find who shot the bird.
Meanwhile, through generous pledges and donations, WildRescue is able to post a reward of $1,000.00 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for shooting the falcon.
They can report anonymously through CalTip at 1-888-334-2258.
Pledges to increase the reward amount should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations can be made HERE.
