Wednesday I got in two female adults, both mothers. Both of them were caught in a trap. The one to the left is the first one I got in. She has puncture wounds on her lower back and tail that look a few days old from possibly a dog attack. Little 2-3 week old pinkies are in her pouch. She will be staying with me for a little while to get some delicious meals before being released again. The one pictured in the middle is the second one I got in and has small abrasions to the top of her muzzle, but luckily no other injuries. She has a pouch full of 8-9 week old babies. She will be staying with me until her babies are weaned, at which time she will be released. I will then raise the babies to approximately a pound in weight and then they will be released as well.
On the 15th a very kind lady brought me a mourning dove that she found in her yard which could not fly. I do not normally do birds but knowing that Sherri, who normally does most songbirds in the area, had a bunch to care currently care for and since I had the space.. I took this guy in. He was checked out at the vet and luckily did not have a broken wing, but it was sprained. So, Phoenix, as the lady named him, was set up for bed rest. The female to the right I got brought in yesterday on the 15th as well. She was attacked by a dog and has multiple puncture wounds to her face. She is expected to make a full recovery and is currently resting in a warm comfortable bed.
