Northern Cardinal #17-0738

On May 1, an adult male Northern Cardinal was brought to a small animal veterinary hospital in Nelson County after the bird was stuck in a glue trap. The veterinary staff removed the bird from the glue trap by cutting the bird’s feathers; because birds require intact feathers to fly, the cardinal could not be released after being freed from the glue trap. The bird was transferred to the Wildlife Center for continued care following the removal from the glue trap.
