They trim feathers and claws from a hawk to keep it as a pet – Diario La Página

by admin

Veterinary doctors from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARN) provide assistance to a brown hawk that unscrupulously trimmed its wing feathers and claws to keep it as a pet.

It is a bird of prey that entered with its feathers trimmed and the claws on its legs filed, which constitutes clear evidence of animal abuse and was kept in captivity as a pet.

It was explained that to restore his ability to fly, doctors are scheduling a feather implant so that he can fly as soon as possible. However, the process for its release will take time, since it must wait for the natural growth of its claws, which are essential for hunting and feeding in its natural habitat.

This case illustrates the damage caused by trying to keep wild species as pets. Both animal abuse and illegal possession of wildlife are crimes punishable by Salvadoran law.
