    Leave it be it will either heal itself or die. Nothing to do.

    as bad as it is, there is nothing you can do for it. maybe put it out of its pain and misery.

    unless you have a butterfly rescue and recovery in your area.

    it is sad to see even butterflies hurt.

    Oh, I wish I could tell you. I saw one today too, and I felt the same way. All I can say is let nature take its course. It breaks my heart to see something so beautiful in pain or broken in any way, but there isn’t much to do. I’m sorry.

    Nothing, They only have a 24 hour life span anyway. The most beautiful creatures leave us so quickly. There’s no such thing as first aid for a butterfly sorry.

    Unfortunately there’s nothing you can do.
    This is the season when you will see them migrating south to Texas. Unfortunately, thousands die, since they tend to fly almost at high level with automobiles. The older ones tend to die before they reach Texas and its the young ones that will roost there till spring when they will return back north where they lay their eggs on some kind of milkweed, I believe.

    The best thing you can do for it is to kill it.
    I hate saying that; it makes me so sad, but if you don’t, it will probably slowly starve to death. :(
