I'm having a hard time sleeping because I didn't do something I think I should have.



It had visible injuries as well on the underside of a wing and it's side. I don't know any wildlife vets around here. But I wish I could have at least euthanized it and given it a clean exit.

Does anyone have experience with the legalities and practicalities of that? I've put a few smaller animals out of their misery (stomping is quick if grotesque). But for something like a bird or deer I'm worried about how to do it, since I don't usually have a firearm, and I'm worried about legalities too.
