Living out in the country most of my life, I rescued a lot of wildlife. Gators, snakes, birds, mammals--etc. It was always something I loved doing and my family was really good about it. Until I got a rattle snake. Then Grams got a little bit mad. LOL Since marrying and having a kid, I haven't been rescuing much. We saved a few raccoons and odds and ends. Nothing too spectacular. My most recent rescue was an Eastern towhee I saved from our yard cat. I fattened him up for a few days and was about to release him when he spazzed out and left his wing feathers in my hand. We were stuck with him until they grew back in. He was much nicer than our cockatiel, prettier too. LOL Its really nice teaching the next generation how to care for animals, both domestic and wild. I learned from an early age to respect nature and my hands on experience has benefited my new family. I hope they carry it on long after I keel over.
