Hurt Dove

by Devon
(Massachusetts)

I found a mourning dove that could not fly- it must have been attacked by a cat because it has no tail feathers. It seems healthy except that it cant fly. No visual sores. We want to help nurse it back to flying condition. I read on line that wings can regrow sometimes. Any ideas?
