Shot buzzard rehabilitated & returned to the wild in North Yorkshire

At the end of October we blogged about a buzzard that had been found with shotgun injuries in Thirsk, North Yorkshire (see here).

The bird’s broken femur was expertly pinned by Mark Naguib of Battle Flatts Veterinary Clinic and the buzzard then underwent a period of care and rehabilitation with the wonderful Jean Thorpe of Ryedale Wildlife Rehabilitation.

Yesterday this buzzard was released back to the wild (pictured here with vet Mark Maguib – photo by Jean Thorpe)

We’ve said this before but we’ll say it again – Jean’s work is entirely voluntary. If you want to support her efforts, please consider making a donation here.

    The scum of humanity do the damage, but the best of humanity put things right. Thank you so much Jean and Mark – and all others like your good selves.

    Brilliant as usual both of you. You restore our faith in (some) humans and demonstrate the difference between decent people and Neanderthals. Once again we at the World Owl Trust salute you. Well done indeed.
