Day 292: "Hold, please..."

"You take a foot and I will take a foot... "

When an injured animal comes in to our small clinic, that animal is stressed and frightened..... it does not know we are trying to help... we are just a bigger animal that has seized ahold of it and it has no idea what we plan to do.

Of course, giving a wild animal an exam means securing the legs and wings so we can get a clear picture of what the injury is and how to help it.

There's nothing to be afraid of ... keep in mind, that eagle's foot is larger than my hand... and still I jumped in to secure the foot and leg so my boss could do her exam.

Hopefully, this bird will be with us a short time and will be free before too long.
Favours photo of the claw. Wishing the bird a speedy recovery. Such a great job you do.
