Yesterday I did a “Wordless Wednesday” post (on a Tuesday), and before I even finished posting it I realized something. From the beginning of Wild Angels’ active season this year, I have been doing posts about Older Daughter’s wildlife rehabbing. For some reason (not planned) I did those Wild Angels posts almost always on Wednesdays. So instead of “Wordless Wednesdays” I was doing “Wildlife Wednesdays” and I didn’t even realize it.
Today’s Wildlife Wednesday post will bring you up-to-date on two very damaged animals that I introduced last week. The raccoon had been hit by a car and was suffering from a superficial wound and a head injury. The coyote was severely emaciated due to starvation and had no fur due to demodectic mange.
The raccoon is slowly making progress. He had to be fed at first but he is now feeding himself. Older Daughter caught him sleeping on his back in his crate and snapped a couple of pictures. CUTE!!
Our coyote friend hates Older Daughter with a passion. Again – this is good, good, good. What is also good is that he is actually beginning to come back to life. He eats great and continues to be treated for the mange. The pictures tell the story. Here they are – when he arrived into Older’s care (first pic) . . . and now.
See you tomorrow.
