Rabbit has injured(?) mouth (MN, USA)

I feed the rabbits on my patio in the city (mostly Timothy hay, but vegetable scraps when I have them) and noticed this little guy about a week ago was chewing weird. I’ve been watching him for the past week and he lets me get pretty close to him so I was able to get some pictures. He chews as if he is missing the bottom part of his jaw almost (but I can see he isn’t). Uses his tongue a lot more than the other rabbits. He is eating frequently and rests a lot on our patio (they all feel safer here as there is a small park with a lot of dogs being walked next door). I don’t know what I shou ..read more

Sick goldfinch?

Not sure if this is the right sub for this but I spotted this strange looking goldfinch on my bird feeder today and I’m not sure if it’s sick or just has wet feathers or something? I brought in all my bird feeders to clean them just in case and when I looked outside the finch was sitting on the ground eating some seed. It let me walk right up to it and finally flew away when I was maybe a metre away from it which is odd because normally the finches are scared by me just opening the door. If it is sick what exactly should I do? Should I put away my feeders for a few days? Located in southe ..read more

Heaven's wildlife rescue volunteer experience

I (F21), am thinking about volubteering at the Heaven's wildlife rescue in Canada, however they do not provide any reviews of previous volunteers, so I was wondering if anyone here went to their rehabilitation center and what their experience was. It seems like it could be very educational but the fact they don't share any previous volunteer experiences seems like a bit of a redflag to me. submitted by /u/iamtotalllyyyyyokay [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Injured Cardinal 3 week timespan MN

We first noticed the injury a few days before the first image I took. The leg was dangling like a dead leaf ready to fall off a tree. We were hoping it would heal up as we have seen in the past with other birds but when I saw him in the first image I noticed part had fallen off. The other images are from about 2-3 weeks later. The color of the area changed and it seems like more dead bits fell off which seems to have helped his balance. He hops around more now and so far hasn't been abandoned by the cardinal group that is in our area. These are all awful images because they are from my ph ..read more

Modifying Birdfeeder for 1-Legged Cardinal?

NJ – We have a very active backyard birdfeeder with a lot of repeat customers including blue jays, cardinals, nuthatch, goldfinch, woodpeckers, juncos, and wrens. One of our regulars is a lady cardinal with an injured leg who is here almost every day, and while she struggles a bit to stay on the perch of the feeder she'll manage to keep up long enough to eat her fill. Her left foot appears to be balled up and she doesn't make any attempt to use it, but other than that her behavior looks like standard cardinal behavior so I don't believe that she's sick. I put a platform feeder out for the lar ..read more

Lone Vulture

I've passed the same vulture in the same spot for two days now (kinda swampy, wooded area in rural lake community, not many houses). He is up and about and when I slow down to see better he hops away. I saw him stretch his wings. Would a vulture lay an egg 15 foot from a semi busy road? I've only seen them lay in old abandoned barns in another state. I've been trying to find info online but I'm not getting anything with this solitary activity. I've had to rescue other large water fowl before here so I'm just concerned but not about to force help on an animal that doesn't need it. Birds are no ..read more

Diet

Hello rehabbers! I work at a facility as a keeper that has this sweet Virginia opossum (NR). She is 9 months and 7.5lbs. Her name is Pocket. We are in the process of changing her diet and preparing her outdoor enclosure. We found the diet plan from the National Opossum Society. We are definitely concerned about her diet though. Right now she is getting 65g of wet cat food, 20g of dry kibble, 65g vegetables, 50g fruits, 20g boiled egg. I am on an opossum fb that is discouraging the use of cat/dog food, as well as Mazuri Omnivore diet. So I was wondering what your thoughts are as the infor ..read more

Will Florida FWC euthanize all illegally kept gopher tortoises?
Reddit » Wildlife Rehabilitation
by /u/Busy-Complaint-2398
1w ago
I don’t live in Florida, but someone has just told me that Florida fish and wildlife will euthanize any and all confiscated gopher tortoises, because that is the experience they had with California desert tortoises (completely different laws) years ago. I think their reasoning is that any disease or illness picked up in captivity could be spread to the wild population. I know that Florida does not play around with gopher tortoises, and I can’t imagine they would euthanize gophers, especially a female that can produce hundreds of eggs, which is the topic of this discussion, unless there was no ..read more
