Recent Wildlife Vic encounters.
Wildlife Victoria made their capture more difficult and, in the process, more stressful for the animals. I gathered them as calmly and quickly as I could and brought them to a carer named Jan's residence in Melbourne's bland eastern suburbs. From the front of her and her husband's home all seems ordinary but venturing into their backyard reveals half a dozen professionally built pens (he's a builder) stocked with ducks, possums, parrots, and whatever else needs caring. During my first visit to their place I helped transfer an injured echidna into a heated, wooden box.
