  • Description

    M/Ss and C/Us of two female vets at the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals in Ilford, Essex, as they look at a budgie, Joey, in a cage on the table before them. One of them lifts Joey out of the cage as commentator tells us he has a broken leg.

    The other vet selects a swan quill from a bunch and cuts off a section to make into a tiny splint for Joey. While the first vet holds Joey, this one attaches the splint to his leg; commentator says "Birds have a low nervous system, so the 'operation' is not as painful as it looks'.

    The splint is taped to Joey's leg, while he swivels his head about and looks slightly distressed; C/U of Joey clutched in the vet's hand. He is then put back in his cage where he staggers about a little, then hops onto the finger of one of the vets and nibbles on her finger - aaah!

    Note: for search purposes: PDSA; P.D.S.A.

    'INJURED BUDGE.' is the correct spelling of the title of this item, taken from the issue book.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
