rescued wild duckling

Ask yourself the following questions before you rescue a wild animal If you answer yes to the questions below, please transport the animal to Gold Country Wildlife or Atlantic Street as soon as possible

- Is there a serious injury apparent (unable to walk, run, climb or fly)?

- Has the animal been caught by a cat or dog? You may not see a puncture wound, and we will examine closely for any injuries. Puncture wounds require antibiotics or the animal will die.

- If no injury is apparent and it’s a baby, has the parent had an opportunity to reclaim its young? A wild baby’s best chance of survival is with its mother.
