Warren County Animal Control picked up a raccoon that was in someone’s yard, reported to be very calm and friendly. When they got the animal to me she began to do this.
In this area, any wild raccoon that is friendly and moving slowly is suspected of having Rabies, and the seizures are another common symptom of this deadly disease. Everyone should be very cautious around any raccoon that is not showing fear of humans - don’t handle them and don’t let your pets near them. Fortunately,no one handled this raccoon and no one was bitten or scratched. This poor raccoon had to be euthanized.

This little screech owl was rescued last night. He has head and eye trauma and was probably hit on the road. Screech owls will hunt along the road because they can find rodents feeding on the litter there. Please never throw anything out along a roadway because it might attract rodents and the animals who prey on them (it’s also illegal to litter!). ...

Did you know it’s illegal to shoot a hawk? This Cooper’s hawk was rescued because of a wing injury, and radiographs showed he had been shot in the wing. All gunshot injuries to protected birds must be reported to the US Fish and Wildlife Service for them to investigate. Hawks and most other birds are protected under the Migratory Bird Act and the hunting of birds can only take place during their designated hunting season. Please spread the word. ...

Unusual case of three young Squirrels attached by their tails. Their tails were tangled in fibrous material that was probably from their nest. The Squirrels were old enough to leave the nest and it appeared the larger one had been dragging the smaller ones. One had died.
When they arrived, they were given anesthetic gas and separated. The circulation had been cut off to the ends of their tails so parts of their tails needed to be amputated. They are much more comfortable now. Thank you Officer Kleptach from Loudoun County Animal Services for bringing them to us.
