Re: Badly busted up crow. Will the Swiss "rspca" intervene?

This is the equivalent of an "SPCA" specifically for birds:

They are an information centre, with a museum, etc. but also give advice, by phone, on where to go with an injured bird.

Also, sometimes pharmacies keep schedules of which doctors are on duty over a weekend.

Here is what's called the Emergency Number of the Vogelwarte, but even this seems to have limited opening hours: today till 12h00, then again 13h30-17h00.

Re: Badly busted up crow. Will the Swiss "rspca" intervene?

Is the bird still alive?

If so, the Ennetseeklinik in Hünenberg ZG is not far from Luzern, they are staffed 24/7 for emergencies.

http://www.ennetseeklinik.ch/site/index.cfm

At the very least, call them for advice.

Most vets at Ennetsee speak English.

FYI, there should not be a fee for treating a wild animal.

Re: Badly busted up crow. Will the Swiss "rspca" intervene?

Ok, so a seemingly positive outcome.

We got through to Vogel Warte on the emergency line. They advised that if we could catch it we could bring it to them. Tried to catch it but it's bloody bigger than I thought & freaky too. We stayed with it for a while & shooed away a few dogs.

It seemed to get its sh1t together after a while & hopped off & we think it flew after that. It could have been another Crow though, they all look the same to me.

Young Son with me was in ribbons worrying about it.

So thanks all for the advice above.
