SUMMARYAntoine's finder was well-meaning but didn't seek medical care for him when he was found with a compound leg fracture. Consequently, the blood supply to his lower leg was compromised and his leg became necrotic and fell off, leaving some bone exposed. Our vet tidied things up so Antoine could live comfortably. We don't always released one legged birds but Antoine let us know he did not want to live in captivity so he was given a soft-release from one of our aviaries so he can have ongoing support.
