RUSSELL CROW'S STORY

​Introducing Russell Crow, our resident American Crow! Russell has an amazing story so far in his short life. Russell had come into a wildlife centre as a fledgling, and released to the wild when he was able to fly. A few weeks later, Russell came back to the wildlife centre he was released from, this time with a broken wing. He remembered where the wildlife rescue was, and that the people there could help him. Unfortunately his wing had to be amputated. Russell lives a fulfilling life at Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue now, and lives in a multi-species enclosure.
