Nobody wants mice in their house, but putting glue traps outside can also catch songbirds! We have already had two in the clinic this year – a bluebird and a wren. Both were saved, but it is a painstaking and painful process for us to remove them feather by feather from the glue. Please consider using a different kind of trap, including a catch and release variety. If you have found a bird on a glue trap, please follow these guideline and bring them to us as soon as possible!
Our fox kit has opened her eyes, and is exploring her surroundings. One of the baby squirrels is also wide eyed and taking in the sights! This week a bald eagle was found in the Hunt Valley area with minor injuries to the wing. This is a big boy, weighing in at 11 lbs! We brought it to the Hunt Valley Animal Hospital for a full evaluation and as of today, March 17, he is back in the clinic, being kept closely contained and quiet. He's doing great and we expect a full recovery
