Found an injured pigeon in East Village, NYC. Think the bird was injured by car, looks like a broken wing. I could not help by reacting to someone who was going to put their boot to this bird.
I just do not quite know what to do with it, have 2 cats at home. Will also have to leave the city this Monday.
It is presently in a community garden. Feel bad about just leaving it out there in the cold.
Anyone please help!!

Please go back and get the bird. I know it's late but the bird is very vulnerable to night time predators. Bring it home and put it in a cat kennel and put the kennel in a closet for the night or your bathroom...someplace the cats can't get to.
There are resources for you in NYC. Here is one...

24-hr hotline can be found here, too :

Yes, you must go back and get the pigeon. It may be a safer location than where you found her/him initially...but it isn't very safe, still.

Just bring a cardboard box with a towel on the bottom. When you get her/him home, just place in a warm, heated room where your other pets cannot get in. Check for any open wounds. Then contact one or multiple of the above resources.

Thanks for caring !!! Once you retrieve, you have saved her/his life.

I went back tonight but problem now is that the poor thing has crawled away from the fence of the community garden where I left it (to be safer than the street) and I could not reach the bird.
Have to find a way to get into the locked garden w/o waiting for the weekend.
If anyone knows anyone who has access to the 6th Street garden pls let me know.
