Wildlife Rescues

Sandy Juba Has Been Busy With Wildlife Rescues

 

It is springtime at The Great Outdoors and that means love has been in the air and the babies are being born!  Our own Mother Nature, Sandy Juba, has had a busy few days with rescues of some of our new little additions.

Sandy rescued a fawn who was injured and she took it to a rehabilitator in Melbourne.  Mike Holland took Sandy a little present – a baby opossum that was orphaned when its mother was hit by a car.  Then Sandy got a call about two baby Carolina Wrens whose nest fell from its resting place near a propane tank and the tiny babies needed help.

What do you do if you find an injured animal?  We have the answer in our article titled “What To Do If You Find An Injured Animal” .  Please click on the link and read the article so you will be prepared if you find an an animal in distress.

If you find a baby bird, “How We Can Help Wildlife” article has some good tips on helping baby birds who may fall out of the nest or need assistance.

As a reminder, if you find a fawn, please do not approach or touch it.  A mother deer will leave a fawn in what she feels is a safe place while she forages for food.  If you take the fawn or startle it so it runs away, the mother may not be able to find it when she returns.  Please admire our beautiful baby deer from a distance.
