      Head wound, do i treat?

      Heard a lound splash last night. Didn't think much of it because i have a net aroud the pond. Woke up today and saw my shiro bekko had a gouge out of the top of her head. She is swiming with what i would call a skin flap (the pice that was gouged is still partially attached to her head).

      Do i just wait and watch?
      Sedate and remove the flap and put something on the wound?

      Just wait and watch. If I were a betting woman, I would put my money on a heron stabbing her in the head. Protect your pond. Make sure the net is raised high enough off the water that the heron's beak can't reach them.

      (PS What does a net AROUND the pond mean?)

      See below. It is raised. I wonder if it was a racoon reaching through the net

      I vote neither, now that I see your net is domed (nice!). Bet it wacked its head on a rock.
