Dad Cassowary has just come in during a break in the rain and he doesn't seem 
too bad, he's limping but is still eating, and the gash is not bleeding or 
unduly swollen, though it is open like a great inverted  ^ tear the back of his 
foot, a nasty wound and one that could easily get torn again the way it is now. 
Let's hope the old beast is resilient, wish i knew how he'd done this though, 
after so many years without major hurt. Thinking about it , we have had  
several chicks with foot injuries, some get better and some disappear, so foot 
injuries must be a fairly common hazard for them.
