The swelling and bruising showed significant progression since presentation, and a second bite wound was noted on the mid-caudal aspect of the antebrachium
He received a bruised, lacerated wound on his left dorsal antebrachium
, which he quickly wiped with paper.
Additional affected areas were the caudal dorsum in the region of the pelvis, the ventrum extending caudally to the tail (Fig IB), the ventral aspect of both wings extending from the distal brachium to the proximal antebrachium
, and the hind limbs extending from the proximal tibiotarsus to the distal tarsometatarsus (Fig 1C).
Angular limb deformity of the antebrachium
has been frequently reported in literature (Ramadan and Vaughan 1978, Thorp 1994, Singh et al.
21-24) These reports include the repair of a large open wound on the distal antebrachium
of a great horned owl (Bubo virginianus) (22); degloving injuries on the heads of northern goshawks (Accipiter gentilis) (23); and wounds on the head of a red-tailed hawk, rock dove (Columba livia), and ring-necked pheasant (Phasianus colchicus).
