Eastern Ratsnake #18-1352

On June 7, a farmer in Augusta County found an adult Eastern Ratsnake in a chicken coop, and noticed that two “dummy” ceramic eggs were missing from the coop; ceramic eggs are commonly used to encourage chickens to lay eggs in specific nest boxes. The farmer suspected that the snake had ingested the artificial eggs by mistake and brought the snake to the Center the following day.

Black Bears cubs of 2018 update

The 11 Black Bear cubs are doing well in the Center’s Large Mammal Isolation enclosure. The bears were fully weaned from their “mush bowls” this week, and are now eating a variety of fruits, vegetables, seeds, insects, and greens. Wildlife rehabilitator Brie said that none of the bears seemed to miss their mush bowls in the past two days, and the cubs are eating a lot more “adult foods” now, which means the Wildlife Center kitchen is going through a good bit of produce!

Bald Eaglet #18-1139 update

Bald Eaglet #18-1139 has been doing well in flight pen A3 during the past couple of weeks. The eagle’s weight is stable, and the bird has been making a few flights around the large flight area. On July 5, the rehabilitation team began a formal daily exercise program for the young bird, to slowly build his stamina during the next month. If all goes well, the young bird could be released sometime in mid- to late August.

Bald Eagle #18-0132 update

The wound on Bald Eagle #18-0132’s foot has continued to heal without complication, and on June 25 the eagle was transitioned to a larger flight pen to begin daily exercise. Rehabilitation staff report that the eagle’s physical stamina will need to improve before being considered for release; the eagle was only able to fly between one and five passes before reaching physical exhaustion.

Bald Eagle #18-0223 update

Bald Eagle #18-0223 has not been flying well during the past few weeks; the bird tires easily and consistently has a left-wing droop. On July 5, Dr. Ernesto evaluated the eagle again and found fresh wounds on the eagle’s left carpus. Dr. Ernesto assessed all of the eagle’s radiographs and determined that the eagle’s fractured left coracoid and clavicle had healed in a slightly abnormal position, preventing the eagle from having a normal extension during flight.
