Gemma is a Lanner falcon that came into the Centre on the 10 July 2020. We got a call from Toyota in Burgersfort that someone who was bringing a car in for service has hit a bird and not knowing what to do had just placed it in the back of the bakkie and left the car for service. We were contacted and went out to get the bird. We took her through to our vets in White River and xrays revealed a midshaft fracture of the radius and ulna of the right wing.
