Attempting to help a poisoned falcon

Yesterday at noon, a falcon landed in our parking lot! At first sight, it appeared to be well but as time passed it became obvious that it had health problems as it started to lose its ability to fly or even walk. After communicating with a couple of animal protection organizations and the Cretan Forest Protection, we tried to keep it alive until transfer to a specialist was secured. Unfortunately, as we were later informed, the bird did not make it during the transfer.

In any case, if you ever come across an animal in a critical condition please contact one of the following animal protection organizations and they will redirect you to the best possible solution:
