Default today at work...

This was a new one for me. I got call for a live bird stuck in the grill of a car. I was thinking someone hit a sparrow or something. Well I get there and I see this.



Iím thinking thatís not a little sparrow. Turns out this lady hit this duck in northern NY station here way back from Canada on Tuesday (today is Friday). She didnít see the bird and thought it was left on the highway. Turns out that she was living in this space for 4 days!


She is now recovering at our rehabbers.
On a related note these little guys were sent over from one of our islands and are now also at our rehabbers.

Y'all are so lucky. I generally get the snake in the engine calls. I hate it when they blow themselves up in order to wedge in there real tight.

And now you know why wesson oil is on the list of things to have for cat, snake and critter extractions. Plus some DAWN dish liquid to de-oil them afterwards...

I get the cat calls in the engine, but most of the time they are unfortunate...

That's right... Cats, Bats, and Birds. Most of them gone.

Someone took their car to one of those drive through oil change places. The mechanic reached in and got bit by what he thought was a possum. Owner wanted us to get it. We told him all we could really do is set a trap. I got there and he asked if he or I could use my pole to get it out cause he has a buisiness to run and can't wait for it to come out. So I took the pole and poked at the animal. It fell down onto a grate below the car and tried to jump down six feet to the floor but I got my pole on him just in time.

Turns out it was a ground hog...
