the kookaburra is cute. i never knew what they were. the echidna does look a little tricky to handle. Kudos to you for the rescuing. emoticon

After the bushfires here in 2009, I was often stopping on the road to pick up distressed animals, birds etc. We were lucky as they closed the main road to everybody but the locals so we had hardly any traffic. I remember stopping a car on the road so I could pick up a kookaburra and Steven had a heck of a time trying to pick up an Echidna. It's like trying to pick a moving bag of pointy sticks, they will try to dig themselves into the dirt if they are on soft ground. Here's a couple of links to show you what I'm talking about

I'm with you guys I don't hit anything with the car, I slow down to make sure the birds get off the road and I'd never deliberately run over anything.

I wonder where this occurred? Here in ND, most people consider them pests, and would've just tossed him in the trash (unless, of course, their children were watching). Fascinating that the rescuer actually got him to breathe again!

Neat story, I can't stand to see animals suffer either. I stop for squirrels, even with DH yelling you'll get hit doing that.

What a lovely end to the story and what a cutie the prarie dog is.

We often did resuscitation on baby goats and sheep when we had them, I even did a version of mouth to mouth to get a little kid to breath.

I'm nowhere near the ocean so I've never seen a shark up close, but it's great that there are people out there that help animals in need.

Jeanette, that is cool how you all saved that baby hammerhead shark. I also would not have known what to do. Of sharks, the hammerhead is my favorite. Of the whales the beluga is my favorite. All though I enjoy hear about and watching ALL animals. But for some reason, I have an outstanding fascination of creatures in the water. I know, strange!! What can I say.

MAKE 2018 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU!!

reminds me of my aunt when i was a kid. we have lots of gophers in alberta, where i grew up. my uncle told my aunt to take the garden hose and fill up the gopher holes in the yard with water and drown/drive them out. when the little half drowned gophers came out of their holes, she couldn't stand it. she scooped them in a bucket and resuscitated ones that needed it, made sure they were all okay and let them all go again. emoticon

There is a long version of this rescue. It runs over an hour and is a great example of human compassion.
My Dad and Grand Mom started teaching me how to care for and handle sick and injured animals when I was about five. Our strangest rescue was a baby hammerhead shark. After 10 weeks of dining on brine shrimp in his private accommodations we took him back to his ocean rescue sight and released him.
Now I'm passing what I learned on to my Grandsons.
