Marjorie Kibbe of Shawnee and Mona Ridley of Tecumseh noticed the injured fowl on the trail near the Expo center and called Animal Welfare when they noticed the bird had a hurt wing and could not fly.

Within minutes, Officer Woody reported to the scene to capture the injured animal and take him to safety.
