Aw, I think my heart might explode. So sweet.
I agree that this is a very cute story! But we all need to keep in mind that birds can carry lice as well as other diseases. And no one sould attempt to care for a wild animal (baby or not) unless they have a license to do so. The right thig to do when you encounter a wild animal in need of help is to leave it where it is and call your animal control agency or your conservation department. Amimals that are scared and/or in pain can cause people serious injury.
I think that's a wonderful heartwarming story, Opus...your friend sounds like a real sweetheart. I think it's admirable for her to try to save these little ones. A lot of communities, ours included, are rural and don't have services such as animal control. I think there is a big difference in trying to help a little bird as opposed to a wild coyote. Maybe Wildlife and Game could be contacted through the particular state to help with that.
.. I have rescued birds and wild animals since I can remember ,part of my nature ,that was a lovely story I hope that person continues to help birds and animals ...thank for sharing ...
Hey, I wasn't trying to rain on anyone's parade there in my last post... I simply felt it important for those who don't know that wild animals can be dangerous (disease, injury).
No offense taken BluC....always good for everyone to be aware, thx for the post. :o)
