Do you know good resources or rescue techniques for injured or sick wild animals?
In the year or two that I’ve been out doing more nature observations, I more frequently notice injured wild animals. If it’s something I can capture myself, I take it myself to a local wildlife rescue/rehab organization (a mt. King snake and a pigeon).
Frequently it is just not feasible for me to capture an animal (lately, a sick coyote, injured deer, an entangled cormorant).
But, i have a real hard time dealing with those animals I cannot capture myself and I’ve spent hours on the phone trying to find assistance from City, County, and State orgs, plus NGOs. I’m still a bit haunted by the animals for which I could not enlist help. I wish I knew how to find better resources.
Any guides or tips for dealing with hurting wildlife?
