On the 18th I got an adult male who was caught in a trap. His upper right canine is broken off and he has abrasions to sides of mouth and top of muzzle from trying to escape trap. He is missing fur around both shoulders which looks to be from old age. He looks to be two and a half, if not almost three years old.
On the 19th I got both a baby gopher and two baby cottontails, unfortunately one of the cottontails was dead on arrival. All were found on the ground, no apparent injury, but the gopher and surviving cottontail were quite thin, dehydrated, and cold. After setting up their own beds they each got placed on a heating pad and soon the baby gopher was eating on it's own.
One the 21st I got another cottontail, this one older and with its eyes open. He was found by a dog and was covered in dried up slobber by the time I got him. He was placed with the other cottontail I got and was started on antibiotics. I also got a young adult female opossum. She was caught in a trap and had small abrasions to the inside of her mouth but luckily no other injuries.
Then today I found a baby mouse in my garage. He was very cold and lethargic so I brought him inside and put him in a warm and comfortable bed. He has already warmed up and I have been able to get some fluids in to him. Only time will tell how he does.
