This #crow was found near a road with feather damage and head trauma, and 2 concerned crow friends hopping around him. He was likely hit by a car! He's now in care at Toronto Wildlife Centre and is doing well, getting lots of cage rest and healing from his injuries. #wildlife
Litter hurts! This female skunk was admitted with a plastic dessert lid stuck around her neck, cutting deep into her skin. The wound was cleaned and treated, and she received more than 20 stitches around her neck. More than 3 months later she's fully healed and was cleared for release by TWC's veterinary team. Always rinse out your food containers and cut your plastic lids. Full video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ljp6kyfzzQ&feature=youtu.be
An American coot was just brought to Toronto Wildlife Centre after he was found on a 9th floor balcony. We suspect he flew into the large sliding glass doors. Wildlife Rehabilitation Manager Lisa Fosco checks his vitals. #wildliferehab #coot
This Virginia opossum was admitted to TWC with frostbite over the cold winter. Today he's fully healed and has been moved outside so he can get used to the weather before going back to the wild. He seems eager to go back home--the first thing he did was climb all over his enclosure looking for the exit! #wildlife #opossum
