Poultney

Poultney

Turkey Vulture
Cathartes aura

In 1993, Poultney was found suffering from a gunshot wound in Poultney, Vermont. It is impossible to know whether the injury was intentional or accidental, but it was certainly illegal. Poultney’s right wing was fractured, and despite rehabilitative care at VINS, Poultney will never be able to fly again. Fortunately, VINS was able to provide a permanent home for Poultney to live as a turkey vulture ambassador.
