Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Back in the summer, when the weather was lovely, my sister and I were walking on the beach near the water's edge and this poor cormorant was obviously in distress. A young lad was trying to help it but he didn't know what to do, as the bird was on its back.
We helped turn it over but to no avail. It didn't appear injured, just exhausted. It wasn't very old. We carried up onto the drier sand but it wasn't going anywhere. So we took it to the vets, just but the road from the beach.
They checked it over and there were injuries so they kept it and later that day when we called they said they had taken it to the Wild Life Rescue Centre in Whitby, 25 miles north of here and they would keep it until it was recovered enough to be released - bringing it all the way back top Filey .

Hallo Leni
Ich denke, Menschen können sehr grausam sein. Ich bin sehr wütend, wenn Leute sagen, dass schlechte Menschen Tiere sind. Tiere sind nicht böse.

DER ARME KERL ABER ER WIRD ES SCHON SCHAFFEN DANK DEINER HILFE UND DEM WILD LIFE CENTER.
ICH HABE HEUTE IN DER ZEITUNG GELESEN DAS EIN HUND GEQUÄLT UND MISHANDELT WURDE ICH HASSE DIESE FEIGEN MENSCHEN.LENI.

It doesn't matter what it is, a snail, a toad, a caterpillar or a beetle. Suddenly she says 'stop', you are almost on a ....., then she takes it up and moves it to a safe place. She saves them all. ☺

Ooohhhh, really Ank? You surprise me! ☺

Does anyone...? ☺

I think they have a communication system that says "Get down to Bren's house!"
But I love it!
However, I do not rescue slugs.

Ah, now I understand the cormorant reference on your hoglet puzzle! Nice one Bren. The Filey wildlife is lucky to have you to see them right!

Impie

I bet they all sense that you care!!! and therefore land on your doorstep! ♥

Brie1648

The little hoglet went to the vets this morning :o))

Good work Brie. ♥♥♥

You are a good egg, round creamy one. God bless you for taking care of the critters!!!!

Brie1648

they can run! But if they hear you coming or feel the weight of your footsteps they stand still. If you touch their prickles the curl so this one I like a prickly grapefruit.

Glad you caught him/her, Brie! :)))

oh Impie, that is so sad. I think sometimes it is easier to put them to sleep than to take the time and effort to help. Tonight (I'm beginning to feel there is a BIG sign over my house) I spotted the little hedgehog that was in the garden the night before last. I grabbed my gardening gloves and a box and managed to pick it up and pop it in the box.
I weighed it while it was still curled and it was 192g.
That is not enough to see it through the winter; they should be at least 600g.
So...it is in a big plastic tub with a towel, some dog wet food and kitten munchies and a bowl of water, in my downstairs bathroom. I will call the vet in the morning and they will tell me where the nearest Hedgehog sanctuary is. I think there is one about 10 miles away.
I'll update tomorrow...cats, hamsters, birds, cormorants, hedgehogs...

#puzzeljac - Thanks, Ank. Yes I was very sad that he couldn't be saved, but I'm glad they helped him putting him out of his misery.

Jumble

Well done Bren.

puzzeljac

Poor bird. Thanks Bren, glad you saved him.
Impie, so sorry.
♥♥♥

Let's hope there's a happy cormorant out there somewhere.
Well done to all involved.

Impie

Aww..... poor baby. You have such a kind heart, Bren to go through all this 'trouble'. Overhere I'd call the "Dierenambulance"...(Animal Rescue in The Hague) and they'd come and pick it up and would've brought it to the Birds Rescue shelter, also in The Hague.
Some years ago when my son and I on our walk to the supermarket I noticed a seagull acting strange on the road. We went over to him and he was obvious injured to his wing, so Liertje picked it up and someone brought a big cardboard box and would bring it to the Bird Rescue shelter. This was on a Saturday and I was curious how he was doing so I called them on Sunday and the man of the shelter thanked us for the rescue, but he told me the bird was so badly injured it was beyond repair and they had euthanised it. After I hang up, I cried!♥♥

Poor thing! Good for the young lad, you, the vet, and Wild Life Rescue...love you all! ❤️❤️❤️

Great story, Brie!
