SUMMARYLucky was found in a bad way in park. Examination showed that he had a shattered knee and a small round hole going right through his body - he'd been shot. The pellet passed through without doing critical damage but broke his knee into lots of pieces. Thankfully it has healed fairly well, though he'll always have a limp. It took about six months to get Lucky full fit again but he has now been released back to his park. Even better, he pulled while he was here - forming a bond with Bobby who came from the same park. It was lovely to be able to release them together.
