update on Victory & Velocity

Victory continues to do well. We anticipate that the bone will be healed enough soon to allow the pins to be taken out of her wing. At that time she will likely be transferred to another facility for flight evaluation. It is once she is put into a flight cage and can use her wing in actual flight that we will be able to get an idea of whether or not there was tendon damage. Even with a healed bone, damaged tendons could permanently ground her. We are hoping for the best!

Velocity is also doing well in the care of a falconer. As previously reported she is in the process of being taught to hunt and kill her own food-a necessary life skill she did not have the chance to learn in the wild. More details on the training to come soon.
