Injured Wildlife

We at World of Owls are not vets! if you decide to remove an animal from the wild, take it to a vet.

………………………………………………………………………

Most wild animals are capable
of inflicting serious bites or scratches, especially if they are frightened
or in pain.

Foxes, Badgers, Geese, Swans, Sea birds and birds of prey etc, can all
be extremely dangerous!

No matter how great your concern

NEVER PUT YOURSELF AT RISK!

Three magic words !

LEAVE IT ALONE!

It would be in your best interests to leave any wild animal alone and
contact the HELPLINE for advice.

Any animal that is
injured should be referred to a Veterinary Surgeon as soon as possible.

Injured wildlife should be
reported

HELPLINE 028 94 472 307

Young animals on their own
or without a parent have not necessarily been abandoned – Don’t go near
them

 or attempt to pick them up – get advice.

After advice, should an animal be taken into care, it should be kept in secure, dark, quiet conditions,
and disturbed as little as possible.

Keep them well away from family
pets, most wild animals will see your cute cat or lovable dog as a natural
predator and will suffer undue stress which can lead to shock and even
death.
