Northern Goshawk’s struggle…

Goshawk – our clinic has been visited by this species for the next time this year. The bird with lacerated wounds on his head and wings was brought to us by the District Office representatives. The hawk, found by the foresters near Tarnowiec, was struggling and bleeding in a forest clearing trying its best to rise up into the air. Its wing was seriously wounded. Luckily, the wound was only lacerated and the nerves were not damaged. The wounds suggest the hawk got injured while fighting in the air with another bird. Goshawks are not the largest birds of prey but they are the bravest and most agile ones. The bird held us spellbound with its beauty. We dressed the wounds and it took just one month to nurse the bird back to health. During the surgery we reconstructed the skin in a way which would not weaken bird’s ability to fly. We placed about 15 surgical sutures, and thanks to some drugs the wounds healed quickly enough to remove the sutures much earlier. During the treatment the bird’s self-preservation instinct began to be visible as the aggressive hawk was trying desperately to free itself from our grips. We then knew the hawk could go free, it was ready and fit to fly and any other attempts to keep it grounded for longer could eventually damage its flight feathers and prolong its rehabilitation. Finally the day to say goodbye to the hawk arrived. We wrapped the bird in a blanket and took it out of Przemyśl where in the middle of nowhere the bird was freed. It flew into the air aggressively, skillfully manoeuvring before disappearing for good.

Slow down! Animals on roads…

A big percentage of injured animals delivered each year to our clinic are mainly those that fall victims to car collision accidents, they are lynxes, roe deer, hedgehogs and many others. Colliding with a speeding car means for most animals death, the chances of surviving are really slim. Serious fractures, internal or external hemorrhages, shock are main reasons for animals dying in a lot of pain suffering torments often bleeding to death on roads. Unfortunately, the lack of proper legal regulations, action schemes and no professional authorities make it even harder to deliver injured animal to an animal centre early enough to save it. In most cases also baby animals are orphaned when their parents get killed. It often happens that in such collision accidents people get injured or killed too.

WWF Poland, a conservation organisation, has recently started a campaign „Slow down! Animals on roads”. Its aim is to make drivers more aware how reckless driving can pose a threat for wild animals. Constant migration in search for food, partner or place for reproduction is simply natural for most animals living in the wild and roads seem to be the most dangerous obstacle. Unfortunately, most animals die when trying to cross roads. WWF has made a website for all those who anonymously wish to help by filling in the form – giving information on witnessing a car accident with wild animals’ participation (visit www.zwolnij.wwf.pl). All information on places where such car collision accidents took place will come in handy in making statistics and preventing further such accidents.

As an institution that gives professional help to animals the victims of accidents we have been invited by WWF Poland to join and support the „Slow down! Animals on roads” campaign. The movement was opened with a short film made by WWF showing a fake accident in which a bear got hit by a speeding car. This scene was supposed to get the attention of media and passers-by and show the magnitude of the problem. We went to Warsaw to play people rescuing the affected bear. During the press conference held after staging the accident scene, we thoroughly explained the problem from our standpoint. How one can help animals participated in accidents, what should be changed to strengthen the campaign. To find more about our stance and answers to questions click  HERE. To see photos from the stage scene click HERE. We are extremely happy that such an important organization decided to fight the problem. We support the WWF campaign wholeheartedly and sincerely hope that the number of car collision accidents will fall considerably and people will change their attitude to injured animals.

Thanks to WWF Poland for the photos.

Roe Deer rescue service...

Unfortunately, we have recently observed that the number of injured roe deer has risen during the last few years. Such a situation has been very difficult for us. The animals mainly get injured hit by cars on busy, suburban roads, they fall victims to burned grass, or during hay and harvest time. Severe winters make it harder for them to get proper food, young animals sometimes for different reasons separated from their mother are left alone and need to be looked after with care. It often takes a long time to nurse the animals back to health. More than once we had to deal with roe deer running free in the town center. Only recently has Poland been deeply moved by the story of two baby roe deer born after their mother had been recovered from the river San. Sadly, we could not save the parent’s life. To see the photos of the rescued fawns click HERE. We are doing our best to cure all ruminants delivered to our centre, but to succeed we need more proper facilities, hence the ‘Roe Deer rescue service’. To create professional facility where we could nurse the animals back to health we are trying to collect some funds. As the Roe Deer are game animals we cannot ask our state institutions for financial support. Still, we managed to make contacts with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) in the UK. RSPCA animal centres deal successfully with a wide range of injured and rescued animals including the roe deer. To find more about our campaign go to the section “Our actions” (click HERE). During the last two days two injured adult animals were brought to our centre, and this time one fell victim hit by a car and the other got injured trapped in house fences in suburban areas. Unfortunately, the first roe deer is in a critical condition, and although we know there is little chance of saving it we are trying our best to help. The other animal is in a good state of health and is slowly but surely coming round.

Monkey orphan…

An unusual guest appeared in our Center. A very young male of marmoset is now our guest. It is a species of small new world monkeys inhabiting South America. Its adventure is rather common. The growth of affluence of Polish society, freedom of goods transfer in the EU – these are the reasons for the increase of exotic animals appearance in Poland. Monkeys, snakes, iguanas are only some of many popular exotic animals in our country. It is often the thing that new caretakers are not able to ensure the appropriate care and time. Beautiful, often incredible in their relationships with humans, have sometimes their disadvantages. Bitten wires, destroyed furniture, spiteful bites, marking everything with urine…these are only some of the drawbacks connected with having a marmoset. In general, marmosets are great in keeping at home. The reason for an untypical spitefulness of Frank – because this is what we called him - lies probably in his experience from the past. His journey from hands to hands, lack of a concrete caretaker, insufficient amount of time and warmth which they need so much made Frank very mistrustful. It slowly gets adjusted to us and the environment. The monkey will be here for good. We care about Frank, we want Frank to settle here and not to worry about his place anymore. Frank will be taken care of very well here.

Fox trauma...

Two Young, two-month foxes were brought to our Center. Unfortunately, their story does not belong to the happiest one can think of. The young animals were the victims of human ignorance. One of the foxes was noticed in the forest by a family who was on a holiday. The family, not aware of the fact that its mother left it just for a moment to look for food, took care of the fox. Ignorant people acting ‘in good faith’ took the little fox home against its instinct and nature. After a few days, the fox not only made a mess, but it also bit their caretakers. Taking into consideration the common risk of being infected with rabies, the animal had to be put into observation. This is when it was brought here. The story of the second one is also very sad. It was also taken from nature. In this case, the fox for a few days was a toy of children unaware of the danger. This story took place in a village outside Rzeszów. The fun was noticed by one of the parents who reacted immediately. The animal was brought here. Its condition was a bit worse. After an initial examination we diagnosed an infectious eyes disease. Unfortunately, we were unable to save the eyes. The fox will be always blind. Similar situations occur in Poland all the time. Almost every day we have calls concerning animals left alone for a while by their mothers. Fuksik and Krecik - these are the names of our new patients. They will stay with us. The blind Krecik unfortunately forever, while Fuksik will go through a long procedure where he will be adjusted to live in the wild again in its natural environment. Let us just hope that this time it will be successful.
