Hospital update–week of January 6

The hospital received 54 animals last week, bringing the total for this year to 35 (19 animals came in on the last two days of 2012).

One of the patients was a wild turkey that had been caught in the grill of a car. Our rescue team volunteer responded,  extricated the turkey and brought it to the hospital. The turkey suffered leg and eye injuries, but seems to be on the road to recovery.
