Not a Lucky Horseshoe

9th December 2021 – Horseshoe Lake, Sandhurst
Not so lucky for this bird treated on Horseshoe Lake by Danni this week. It was found with fishing line wrapped around its leg which had obviously been there for some time as the skin had started to grow over the wound. Danni got it out of the water and treated it to a little surgery on the bank to remove the tackle and treat the wound. The bird was released back to his friends on the lake and should make a full recovery.
