When this young endangered Hawaiian Goose was brought to HWC on December 27, 2018, it was not able to stand. Its keel was also flattened in such a way that it looked like the gosling was stepped on. The youngster was sent to Feather and Fur Animal Hospital where they were able to correct the injuries that were preventing it from standing. When it arrived back at our facility, the Nene gosling was able to stand and walk. The youngster was transferred over to DOFAW to be reunited with its family about a week later.
Not all heroes wear capes, but some make booties for Nene! The team at Feather and Fur rock!
