Abstract:
Domestic and domiciliated birds encounter life-threatening situations because of their propinquity to human activities and household hazards. One such household hazard is collision with ceiling fans which can lead to severe traumatic injuries or internal damage mostly resulting in death. A Red-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer; Linnaeus, 1766) was found in critical state at Veterinary Hospital, PGIVER, Rajpur, Himmatnagar. History and circumstantial evidences suggested sudden and direct collision of the bird with a rotating ceiling fan. The bird collapsed before any medical care could be provided. Later, the carcass of the bird was subjected to a detailed post-mortem examination (PME) which revealed severe internal hemorrhage in abdominal cavity and parasitic infestation by Raillietina spp. The present paper highlights detailed observations of the PME and first record of Raillietina spp. infestation in a Red-vented Bulbul of the region.
