EZRA was left to die as a ritual sacrifice in December 2013, in a Chicago cemetery where he lay on the ground immobilized in freezing temperatures for more
than a week. For background, see
Ezra the rooster, sacrificed cruelly in a cemetery. He survived for a week to be saved.
Many people have sent Get Well wishes to Ezra during his difficult hospital surgery and have asked to be kept informed on his progress. Here he is!
Free from Harm’s executive director, Robert Grillo, provided this Update on Ezra on Feb 6: “Ezra's doing great. Here he is pictured with his
primary caretaker, Melissa Summer Pena. His sutures from the surgery were removed and he has fully healed. He still needs a lot of special care. We're also
exploring the best options for him for his long term mobility. We're consulting with people who have dealt with similar cases of birds whose legs had been
amputated due to frostbite and/or gangrene.”
