Marcos gets a helping hand from ECC

Marcos, an injured pigeon, was one of the animals rescued this week by ECC. Staten Island’s Animal Care & Control contacted us about a pigeon that they were going to kill due to injuries he sustained when attacked by an animal. Luckily for Marcos, we agreed to take him into our wildlife rehabilitation project and have him seen by one of our avian veterinarians. Although Marcos has a handful of wounds all over his body, our veterinarian believes he will make a full recovery with the help of some pain medication, antibiotics and TLC. We hope the day is soon coming when all animal care establishments take the extra step to preserve life and alleviate suffering by reserving euthanasia for only animals who are truly irrepairably suffering.
