Description: Captive bird in Mokolodi Wildlife sanctuary. Apparently shot by a farmer who discovered it eating his goat. The shot severely damaged one wing. I didn't discover the middle part of the story but now it stays at Mokolodi and is part of the educational programme they offer to school groups. The lappets on either side of the face clearly visible.
