Please Help. Last night I caught my dog chasing a young pigeon. After scolding him, I realized the pigeon had lost all his tail feathers. He is not hurt. He tries to fly. We have alot of cats in the neighborhood, so I brought him indoors, put water and seed in a birdcage. He seems alright. He had a good night. I do not plan on keeping him. Should I release him? Can he fly at all without his tailfeathers? If not, how long should I wait before attempting to release him?
