(The horrific neutering story does sound a bit odd. The ...) real danger with neutering a male is not the surgery, it's the anesthesia. And, of course, you'd have to have a vet that handles other companion rodent pets. Castration of such a small critter takes a talented vet with a delicate touch.

That said, if a vet castrates a flyer, and that flyer is found the following day hanging from the cage wires in such a condition, I'd be thinking that the wound was not self-inflicted. Did the flyer live alone? Other flyers will occasionally attack a weakened individual, even if they lived happily together with nary a squabble.

I vote with waiting a bit, before worring about bringing another flyer into the fray. Or drey. (LOL)
