Sad news I’m afraid. I received a call from Gower Bird Hospital just after 6:00 this evening. Bramble was examined this afternoon by the vet and the condition of her leg was much worse than anyone had anticipated. Apart from the multiple fractures in her back leg, her pelvis also showed signs of trauma that would certainly have been life threatening had she ever borne young. Had we not intervened, her leg would’ve become infected eventually leading to a slow painful death from septicemia.
Bramble died peacefully under anaesthetic, perhaps some small consolation I was told, given that injuries of this nature are usually discovered too late. 🙁
