Yesterday, bright and early..7am, I was driving to a appointment. As I was driving I seen a mom raccoon and her 3 kits starting to cross the road. I then see a truck flying the other way....long story short, I rescued mommy and her 3 babies from getting smoked. It was frustating, people just don't care and can't be bothered to even slow down. Luckly I was there and these little guys and mom were able to make it cross the road.

Today, i was on my way home from the mall. As I was driving I seen a bird sitting on the road, not moving. I pulled a u turn, threw my four ways on, and got out. He was consious, but not moving. I had a box in my car, poked some air holes in it and went to get him. As soon as I was about to bent down and pick him up, he flew away. I assuming that he probably got clipped and was just stunned for a bit. Luckly he was good enough to fly away. Again it is frustating to think how many people probably passed him by and either just didn't see him or just didn't care. Sadly I am going with just didn't care. But on a good note...he flew away.

It reminds me of the time I was driving down the road and two birds were on the side of the road, flapping their wings wildly and going nuts. I thought they had gotten hit by a car, so I backed up and got out and went to see if I could help them. They were mating. I felt so stupid, and the guys that were standing outside in front of a manufacturing plant on their lunch break must have really got a charge out of it.

Aww...shucks..thanks guys..

Chico: Did the landlord every fix the roof? I know we have met many times, either rescuing a domestic or wildife. I remember that day with the squirrels. The guy didn't want to hurt them, however i had to tell him that I need to check the trap that he set the night before.

Benmax: lol, yes my facebook page is dedicated to animal welfare. While I miss my work as an Animal Protection Officer, It is because of my APO job, where I became interested more in wildlife and conserving them, and as hard as it was to quit my beloved APO job, i decided to go back to school and take a Fish and Wildlife Conservation Technician program. This fall I will be finishing my last year. I am particular interested in Ducks Unlimited, and working as a waterfowl Technician and Wetland conservation. Considering all of the diverse species that need wetlands to thrive...I am also interested in becoming a conservation officer/federal wildlife officer as well though..
