I have nursed several animals back to health and raised baby animals and had the bittersweet joy of releasing them. I was a vet nurse in a former life and often bought home animals that needed nursing. I pick up a sick or injured bird and put it in a box in a quiet place . Sometimes the birds have hit the window hard and If it recovers after a few hours or overnight I release it. If it is obviously hurt or unwell we go straight to the vet or RSPCA.
I volunteered for a wild animal rescue group. I was the driver that picked up animals others had found and brought them to the group to care for and release. There were many raccoons. Does Australia have raccoons? I don't think so. Because they are so cute, people did not realize how vicious they could be. I remember one that was petted all day at an office; they put it in a box for me and folded the flaps. I put it the back of my car (a hatch back so open to the cabin). It was a hot summer day and I did not have air conditioning, so I had both windows open so as not to distress the raccoon. Travelling down the expressway at 100 km/hr, I see the raccoon coming out of the box. You should have seen me trying to wind up the windows so as not to lose my precious cargo!
Yes we have removed quite a few pythons out of the chook pen. Luckily we grabbed the snake before it grabbed a hen. One was stealing eggs from under a broody hen. I tried to add a photo of most recent snake but i am not very tech savvy 😉
