Our beautiful Dora is currently being treated at Wildlife in Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation (WINORR) for a wing injury.
I do not know all the details, but Dora experienced some drama last week on 9th Street and Avenue C when the NYPD received a call about an injured/sick hawk. They investigated, but she apparently escaped them.
Monday night, she was picked up by NYPD on Ave C between 9th and 10th Streets and was taken to Animal Medical Center. Rehabber Bobby Horvath from WINORR picked her up today and reported that her wing is not broken, but she is unable to fly.
I'm relieved that Dora is in good hands and is receiving the care she needs. I will post any updates as I know them.
WINORR is a non-profit that receives no funding. The Horvaths take care of our urban wildlife out of the kindness of their hearts. Please consider donating to their cause.
