A Warren bird sanctuary is caring for a federally protected bird after it was injured over the weekend.

Birds in Flight Sanctuary in Warren received the call about a turkey vulture that had been shot with an arrow.

Sanctuary officials took the bird in for X-rays to see the damage done and found that the bird also had been shot with a pellet gun.

They were able to remove the arrow and are continuing to monitor the bird as it recovers.

The bird is expected to stay in their care until spring.

Turkey vultures are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and are not to be harmed.
