Soffia the Hawk died….

yesterday at “For Pet’s Sake” in Decatur.  Yesterday afternoon.  I hve been calling all damn day and nobody knew?  The man who answered the phone (Andrew?) was very casual about this.  I will not use this clinic again for rescued and injured wildlife.

    I am, too. the fact that she died that afternoon, and they never could get their story straight….worries me. I have a beautiful feather from her tail she lost in the fight. Sigh.

    So, so sorry! A pity the clinic was so aloof about it. Hope you can find another clinic – there probably will be another wild life to be saved at some point. Sorry Jane.

    Thank you, Petru….I am pissed at the incompetence of this clinic. However, Soffia will not die in vain. The Chatto. Nature Center has invited us for a personal tour (127 acres….hope they have a golf cart!) by one of the directors when I wrote and told them what happened….and I will do a painting of a raptor of their choice for the Silent Auction in 2020 in Spring. Soffia was supposed to be taken their for a permanent housing. I also will write a letter of complaint to this ‘clinic’ as to their treatment of concerned rescue people. They didn’t transport Soffia and she looked pretty funky when we delivered her to Pet’s Sake. Who knows what actually happened but they could have told us when she died…a short phone call….it was a day before they confessed up Soffia’s fate. Why? Thanks, Petru. These animals are not expendable. Blessings to you, Petru.

    No, they surely are not expendable! Glad, at least, something came of it. I just read through the messages on the group chat of the animal rescue organisation here, dealing with domestic pets almost exclusively. A dog belonging to a community member with no money of his own were assisted. The dog was caught in a snare and the wound was terrible. Quick action got the dog to the vets who stitched him up and he’s going to pull through rather splendidly. One’s grateful for each success story and that’s a fact. Another hue and cry for a dog who got dropped off next to a road. It was too terrified to go near people. It took some three days of going out to the dog, some 40km away before he allowed himself to be picked up. We got photos of him resting in his new home. Many stories.

    Wonderful, Petru! Each of these stories reaffirm my belief in some of humanity. Some one said: You can see the level of civilization in a country by the way they treat their animals. Here in Atlanta? Bad in general. But some people try. Thank you for these wonderful stories….I would love to see the photos if you have any.
