I have found sick/injured wildlife, what should I do?
If safe to do so, secure the animal in a cage/box and keep dark and quiet. Beware even sick/injured wild animals can bite, kick, scratch when feeling threatened. Call your local vet clinic and arrange to drop the animal off for one of our vets to assess it. You will be asked to provide details such as the location and time you found the animal in order to relocate it if it is well enough.
