Rehabilitation Challenges: Handling Challenges

dangerSome wild animals are dangerous to people. Birds of prey like hawks and owls have strong feet with sharp talons that can injury people. Many mammals like raccoons and even squirrels can bite very hard.

Even if they are not dangerous, wild animals do not want to be held for simple care like cleaning wounds or changing bandages. Just getting a wild animal to take its medicine can be challenging!

It takes special training to know how to safely handle and treat wild animals.
