- owlsnestsanctuaryforwildlifeWhat a bittersweet case. It is not often that you get to see a leucistic red tailed hawk in the wild so we were all very excited to have the opportunity to work with one. We were not sure at first why it had become grounded but once it made its visit to @thewildlifedocsabc and had xrays it was clear. This magnificent animal had been shot not once but at least twice. Dr Pete was able to remove the pellets and now this bird is on the road to recovery and release.
