• Difficulty or inability to stand

Capturing and transporting the animal

Never approach an animal without first consulting a wildlife specialist. Even small animals can produce serious injuries. If you have been bitten by a wild animal, look for medical care immediately.

Unless you get other indications, here’s what to do while you wait for the help to come:
• Put the animal in a transport cage/box. If using a cardboard box, make small holes for air to enter (not while the animal is in the box). Line the bottom of the box with a towel (or other thick textile) or newspapers.
• Wear gloves when handling wild animals, they can transmit diseases.
• Keep the animal in a quiet environment and transport it to the nearest vet or to the nearest wildlife rehabilitation center.
• It is very important that during handling and transport the animal is in a safe and quiet place. The animals are already scared, and the extra stress can aggravate their medical condition.
