WINC was contacted when a Swamp Wallaby became stuck between the bars of a swimming pool fence. Best not to ask why; wildlife turns up in the strangest places.
The pool fence probably had to be replaced after the bars were cut through, but the Wallaby was finally released from its trauma & taken by the carer for some TLC. After 24 hours of rest, relaxation & observation, he was released & bounded off into the bush – hopefully a wiser animal
Being smarter than your average bear, wildlife knows when it's on a good thing, & sometimes proves very difficult to release back to the wild! This Topknot Pigeon was raised from a nestling, & has formed such a strong bond with his young WINC friend, the wild is the last thing on its mind.
