Violet is an American Kestrel that came to us as an orphan in the summer of 2013. It was apparent that she had been raised illegally by humans and fed an improper diet. This poor nutrition caused metabolic bone disease which 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.
