This cockatoo is from Coomera and was presented to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital for treatment after being rescued by the RSPCA/Currumbin Wildlife Hospital shared ambulance.
This poor little guy was found entangled in a soccer net. When he arrived at the Hospital part of the net was still wrapped tightly around his neck and he had to be anaesthetised to have it safely removed. He was treated with fluid therapy, pain relief and anti-inflammatories.
Lucky is one lucky cockatoo – he has been through quite an ordeal but is now on the road to recovery!
