A day at a wildlife hospital
Chicks - yummy for some!
After the foot massage and a physiotherapy session, the red kite is feeding normally, back in its room. This is a good sign, the vets say. It's a majestic-looking creature, but its food is a bit off-putting. It gets baby male chickens. They have been separated from females, killed with CO2, frozen and sold. At least here in the wildlife hospital, they are used for a good cause.
