Little Red Flying-fox

I have just done my first, non-lethal rescue of a little red flying-fox. She was badly tangled in loose nylon netting around a grape vine. The net had wrapped around her wings and neck, and she was not happy. She was even less happy with me, and bit my gloves and scratched at every opportunity. I cut her out with a chunk on net and grapevine attached, and took her to the zoo so they could knock her out and cut off the net.

No damage at all. Jodi the Vet will release her tonight.

While I was at the surgery, Timm The Vet was doing dental work on a maned wolf. That is one huge doggy!
