Kisa, a Peregrine falcon (Falco peregrines), was found on the ground in a field in Rancho Palos Verdes. She can no longer fly due to a bullet still in her shoulder. The veterinarian decided that it was too risky to remove it, as the procedure might damage more muscles and tendons in the shoulder area. She will never fly again. Peregrine falcons are the fastest animals on earth. We adopted Kisa from South Bay Wildlife Rehab in Rancho Palos Verdes, at 9 months old in January of 2011. It takes Peregrines three years to reach adulthood. Kisa is a full adult as of Spring 2013.
