This Osprey came in after having been found tangled in fishing line. The line had cut into the soft tissue in the left armpit and right metatarsals, exposing the muscle. The bird is in otherwise decent condition. We are focusing on wound care, and infection prevention.
Update: This patient is now in a mew with two other Ospreys. She no longer has a wing wrap on, and her lacerations to her Right side have healed. We are keeping an eye on the larger area of exposed muscle in the armpit.
