There is not much that can be done for a wood pigeon with an injured
wing. It would never be able to fly and would have to be 'looked
after' all its life. Not a nice prospect for a wild animal.
See if you can find someone to do the deed and put this bird out of
his misery. Wood pigeons can breed many birds in one season -
although only 2 at a time and they are not endangered.
I know its harsh but sometimes the best course of action is (as the
RSPCA) suggested leave nature to take its course
