    This is great information…exactly what I tell people. I wish more people would listen. Thank you for sharing.

      I was so appreciative they not only said not to try to treat wildlife yourself, but showed examples of what could happen. People don’t honestly understand, and it’s partly because of each species’ habits of hiding discomfort or pain, especially when it feels danger–we think we’re doing fine because they’re not screaming in pain as a human might be. Thanks for reading!
