That deputy seemed like a really nice guy who cared. (Huge son-of-a-gun, too…completely filled my driver side door.) I didn't sense any dishonesty with him. Also, he agreed with me when I was admiring the bird. Beautiful animal.
I hope I didn't imply otherwise. He sounded wonderful and well informed.
Unfortunately not all people realize that when an injured wild animal is taken to vets, they are sometime euthanized without cause. Rehab centers rock, and vets that get certified to rehab are the BEST!!!
Again, thanks for another great rescue:D
Great thing you did…Keep at it. On the road, you have much more ability to see and/or care about all of these creatures, in a timley manner, than most of us. I usually see the "roadkill" aspect, after the fact. It kills me every time I see it regardless of the animal, even the lowly possum (lots of around here).
Those are adorable! And better pic's than the lame one I took of Kentucky. I'm kind of a dolt sometimes. Three cameras in my truck and I use my phone???
oh well, you had other things on your mind at the time.
Thanks Basenjimomma. Yes they are felted; the top layer is done with specialty wools - mohair for the white and lincoln for the brown. Felting is a lot of fun, time consuming, but not too difficult. You may want to see if your local library has a book on felting and pick it up. It may give you some idea if it is something you want to do.
