Apparently we weren’t the only ones that didn’t get Mother Nature’s memo that spring was coming late. Wildlife Haven is currently caring for two unique water birds that are part of the grebe family. These birds, similar to loons, are not good at walking on land because their legs are positioned far back on their body. Their small little wings also can’t get them flying without a running start in the water to build momentum.  With the rivers and other large waterways still mostly covered by ice, it leaves these poor birds stranded.  Let’s hope we get our warm spring weather soon so these birds can get back to the wild.

New arrival at WHRC over the weekend. This adult Beaver was found in the parking lot of Wildwood Park Saturday morning. It has some puncture wounds on its back and is weak but seems to have an appetite as it’s chewing away on some willow branches. We are treating the wounds and hopefully will see a quick recovery.

Another fox update for those who are following her progress.  She is eating up a storm and putting some meat back on her skinny body, the face is looking so much better!  We also know she is feeling better as we can tell she has been more active and exploring her enclosure a bit more. If you wish to help this sweet girl or other animals we care for, consider making a donation to help with the costs of providing food and medication.  We also have a general wishlist of items we stock up on for the busy season coming soon.  You can view the wishlist on our website here: https://wildlifehaven.ca/pages/wish-list

Red Fox patient update: One and a half weeks in care and look at the change! She also had a bit of an infection in her eye which is being treated as well but she can open her eyes again. Her face and legs are clearing up slowly but surely. Treatment for her mange will continue for several more weeks yet but already she is getting better and stronger.

Wildlife Haven would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter! While kids may be out hunting in the yard for chocolates and other treats, please remember that rabbits may be using your yard as their nesting sites soon as well. If you see a nest of baby bunnies all on their lonesome, don’t move them just yet! The mother only tends to her babies twice a day, at dawn and dusk, for a few minutes. You can always contact Wildlife Haven at 204-878-3740 and we can help determine if they need to be brought in or should be left alone for mom to care for.

Last weekend we had numerous phone calls from concerned citizens in the St James area who saw a sickly looking fox roaming around. Somebody managed to send us a picture and we confirmed it had mange. A fox with mange may move slowly and tend to hunker down to rest but they are still mobile and able to run off at the first sign of someone attempting to approach, making them next to impossible to catch. We were very lucky however; one gentleman spotted it entering his garage and was able to keep it contained inside until we were able to go out and capture it. This poor girl’s face is badly affected with scabbing from ears to snout, making her unable to fully open her eyes. She has started her journey towards recovery now. A big thanks to Tim for assisting us in containing this fox so we could capture her and get her medical care.

Here is the after picture, looking all fluffy and like an actual Arctic Fox now!  We are very lucky to have such dedicated staff and volunteers who managed to reorganize their schedules last minute in order to get this fox cleaned up when it came in.  The night and day change is what makes everything worth while. 
Normally we would plan to release her back to Gillam, where she was originally found.  MB Sustainable Development has decided that due to a history this fox had of being habituated to humans and finding trouble, she would not do well back in the wild.  It was also reported that she was conditioned to finding food from human sources rather than her natural diet.  This could pose a risk to people if she became ever more bold or aggressive while looking for food.  Instead, MB Sustainable Development is working on a suitable placement for her where she will be safe and stay out of trouble. 
Every year, we see at least one case of an oiled animal come into care.  They are either attracted to the smell of the oil or other items that may be mixed in. This fox was found in her predicament because there was a container of used cooking oil left open.  The washing process is always a stressful situation to the animal and ingesting the oil can also pose other long term health concerns.  Please always remember to properly contain and dispose of any used oils so we can prevent this from happening.

A great big thank you to Sustainable Development officer Andrew for making arrangements to get the fox to Wildlife Haven in such a timely manner and to Centennial Animal Hospital for assisting us in getting this poor fox decontaminated. She was sedated and monitored by vets during the wash process so she would not become over stressed. While she was sedated we gave her a thorough check over to make sure nothing else was wrong. It took a number of washes to get all the oil off!

Good guesses everyone! Last week Wildlife Haven received an Arctic Fox from Gillam, MB. It was found stuck in a drum of used cooking oil but was quickly rescued and sent to WHRC. Animals covered in oil run the risk of losing their ability to thermoregulate and in winter temperatures, that can be detrimental. Stay tuned to see the “make over”.
