Poodle survives drop from sky
A Poodle has survived being dropped from the sky by a bird of prey, thought to be an Eagle.
The six year old pooch landed in the garden of a nursing home in Vancouver. The dog had suffered broken ribs from the fall and had visible claw marks on her body.
The distressed dog was taken to the nearby SPCA animal centre where she received specialist treatment for her injuries. She was also named May by the centre, as a reminder of the month she fell to the earth.
Staff at the centre believe that May might have been stray for some time and it might have died from neglect had the eagle not found her and brought her to the attention of nursing home staff and residents.
Speaking about May, SPCA Sunshine Coast branch manager Shannon Broderick said:
We don’t know how long she had been wandering without care, but she was obviously very neglected. It’s ironic, but this bird may have saved her life.
