Last September we received this Crow as a patient in our Wildlife Hospital. It was possibly imprinted by humans, unable to fly and had some swelling in its foot. It received medical treatment from our animal care team and began to heal and grow stronger. It was eventually able to fly, but it was very apparent that it was too imprinted. At the time, we didn’t have any other crows at our facility so it was transferred to another Wildlife Center in Oregon who had crows. It spent a couple months living with their crows in hope they would help teach him how to be wild. It did exhibit some wild behaviors but still remained imprinted. The Crow was transferred back to us temporarily. We are happy to announce that we have found it a permanent home at a Wildlife Center in Ohio where it will soon be transferred.
