Dash is an American Kestrel that came to us as an orphan in the summer of 2013. She had an old fracture in her right leg that had not healed properly. It was apparent that she had been raised illegally by humans and fed an improper diet. This poor nutrition was responsible for the metabolic bone disease that caused her leg to fracture. Unfortunately, because she was raised by people she imprinted on humans rather than her own species. Due to her lack of fear of people and her permanent leg injury, she is not a candidate for release.
