SANIBEL, Fla. — The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) is treating a double-crested cormorant for symptoms related to red tide, or a possible infectious disease.

The bird was found under a bush in Fort Myers, sprawled out and breathing from its mouth.

The bird was weak, wobbly and dehydrated.

While checking out the bird, an x-ray showed a fishing hook trapped in the bird’s gastrointestinal tract.

In a facebook post, CROW said it treated the animal with “antibiotics, supportive fluids, and started on intravenous lipid emulsion therapy (IVLE) treatments to eliminate any toxins from its system.”

Rescues like these are nothing new for CROW. To see how you can help the non-profit continue this work, head HERE.
