    Default Just found a baby wildie in middle of road

    I drove by, saw him and thought he was dead, but turned around and drove back to check. He was alive, so I scooped him up, wrapped him in a blanket and brought him home. He is sodden (pouring with rain here) and terrified. He is in a cardboard box stuffed with hay, I daren't check on him as he is so frightened. I don't know what is wrong with him, he may just have been clipped by a car and be dazed or it may be worse. I guess he is 5 to 6 weeks old.

    I am expecting that he might pass away within the next few hours due to injury or fright, but if he survives and needs treatment then I need a plan of what to do with him and where to take him.

    It's the last thing I need at the moment. I was on my way home from the vets after leaving Scooby for investigative procedures into why he is still not eating following his incisor removal.

    I feel so stressed.

    Poor little mite I'd try and locate a Wildlife Rehabilitation place to take him to if he survives.

    Sending vibes for both him and for Scooby.

    Tracy are you near any Wildlife rescue centres as they will take him as usually they have wildie babies of the same age and put them all together. xxxx

    Oh Tracy, I'm sorry. I know the feeling, you are compelled to help but it can be a huge upheaval. At least hopefully at that age they will be weaned so much easier to care for. I hope s/he is okay and you can find a safe place for them soon.

    Sorry also to read about Scooby, I hope his problems are resolved soon.

    Yes I think wildlife rescue is what I need to contact.

    I have just peeped at him and he buried himself into the hay. He is old enough to have the fear of humans. I've spoken to my vets, if he is still alive I'm going to take him there to be checked over when I fetch Scooby home and the nurse on duty is going to check out where we could take him for rehabilitation.

    I'm sorry Tracy .... another thing piled on top of you, and you must be tired from yesterday.

    I'm also sorry to hear that Scooby isn't picking up to the point of you not worrying....
    Good luck with the vets - many vibes xxx
