Talk to the Eagle gods

BE 06-42 came to us from USF&W in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. He was caught in a snare trap that wrapped around his left wing and his body. There seems to be no broken bones but he's bruised up pretty good. Cindy had trouble trying to get it to take an iv, so we had to tube feed it to get some fluids in it.

This guy needs a little more help then what we can give him. Talk to whoever you talk to when the lights go out and have them send him a little extra help.

I'll say a prayer if it might help.

Can I wish bad things for the person who left the snare trap? Are they even legal? In a wildlife refuge?

Dave said...

Laura - can't hurt. Thanks! No bad things about the trapper please. They are legal with a permit. There are some issues though, but we'll leave that up to USF&W Law Enforcememnt.

Damn traps. I really dislike people sometimes.

Update - He's still on his feet, but were still tube feeding him to get him fed and hydrated. He's still pretty weak.

Thanks for the update, dave. I hope BE 06-42 makes it. He's definitely in good hands.
