Yes! I found this echidna yesterday in our yard. I used a spade to gently lift it into the box and released it. It was great to see and the kids lived it!
Whoops. Loved it!

Many years ago I caught the ground lifting and "breathing" . . . .scared the tripe out of me until I realised it was an echidna! It was wonderful to see it . . . on acreage, so he was safe.

I had a small panic when I saw the earth moving! Then I saw the spines and finely my brain worked out what I was seeing. They are amazing animals. It had dug itself in.

(my parents despaired of me . . . I brought everything home . . .still do . . my ex always said he would get more attentionif he had fur, feathers or hooves.)

There are no echnidas in Canada. I had to look them up. I wonder how many animal species we have in common?
by mpwhe
Yes I have.

A little bird, that fell out of it's nest, we looked after it till came the time for it to fly away.

Quite rewarding experience.
That is amazing. Birds as so tricky to look after.
by Naomi
yes they sure are!

Spent my life doing it. A lot of the time they visit for months after and then finally stop. So nice.

That is fantastic. You must attract animals.. I have a similar thing, the first was this beautiful small owl when I was about 6.

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.
The only animals I've ever caught were birds and i released them.
Me too, until the echidna! Somewhat different in texture

I've never come across a wild animal that needed rescuing before.
We've never come across a wild animal in need of rescue. It would be a lovely thing to do to help one out though.

My husband has released a lizard which we found in the back yard, and I have released a few birds, if I find them injured.
What kind of lizard?
by Naomi
No I haven't. If we found an animal that needed help, we would always take it to the RSPCA, so that they could nurse it and then release it.
i agree. A vet check or rspca is a great idea. Luckily my vet isn't frustrated yet by be bringing in strays or rescued animals.

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!
That is an amazing story! No there are no raccoons in Australia, but I have seen them in the US and they are very cute.
by Naomi
Quite often catching and removing carpet snakes from inside the house or on bird cages.
Wow!! That is amazing. Do you have chickens?
by Naomi
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 😉
