If you walked out of your house one morning and saw a bird with a broken wing huddled in some nearby bushes, what would you do?
Not to sound heartless, but I would keep walking. Survival of the fittest my friends, survival of the fittest. Besides, I’m not a vet. What would I do with a bird with a broken wing? Take it to an actual vet? And then what? Pay them money that I don’t have to try to heal a wild animal who would probably go on to be eaten by a hawk in a week anyway? Yeah, okay.*The Question of the Week can be found in The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph.D.
