    Fish attacked ? Heron

    Not a brilliant pic but he doesn’t stay still for long, taken just before going back to pond. Every living thing is worth trying to save ☺️

    Believe it ir not I have had to move Sparky into a bigger tub as he has been moving around a lot better for last week and half, eating well and healing over.

    @Donna Saverino MI didn’t want to name him at first but, Sparky is still going and noticed he is moving about more today, tomorrow will be 14 days since he was attacked, that’s got to be a good sign

    Fish is about 14cm long so you can imagine size of the wound - had to google fish anatomy and I think it has missed any vital organs. It’s still swimming about, has its quiet moments tends to stay at bottom but then container isn’t very deep prob double his height, idea was to limit amount of...

    It is netting that goes across the pond to stop birds and little people, heron (I believe as have a local one) didn’t see the netting and went for bird, I found netting in pond and fish in the pond bit lifeless. Wasn’t a net I use to catch the fish.

    Thanks for reply, this is the other side, think photos/light makes it redder than actually is, just have pinkness down both lengths of his body.

    Just the one guy, different views. Seems to be healing as far as the wound is concerned from a medical point of view but then could be something I am not seeing

    Seeking advice as unfortunately I’m a nurse not a vet! believe my fish was attacked by heron a week ago today, luckily (maybe) saved by the netting across the pond. Think that I found him shortly afterwards and moved him out of the pond. Surprised he went 24 hours after the nasty chunk taken...
