The stork feels better

In the Chernivtsi region, volunteers for the protection of wild animals received a young stork in critical condition, which had eaten rubber, glass, cardboard and other garbage.

The bird probably had inflammation of the digestive tract and was trying to alleviate its condition, Viktoriya Husarova, a volunteer who takes care of the stork, reported on Facebook.

She explained that this is how birds, even domestic ones, try to get rid of pain.

"The bird was all inflamed, it could barely stand on its feet, one of its legs, by the way, hurts. I poked him all night, gave him medicine, and in the morning the bird was sick of garbage," Husarova said.

Ectoparasites, trichomonads and coccidia were also found in the animal using microscopy, a large number of epithelium, leukocytes and rods.

"We are doing our best, and there will be no way," she wrote.
