Abstract

The very ‘wildness’ of wildlife casualties is central to the veterinary surgeon’s goals in their treatment. This chapter considers the ethical judgements to be made concerning wildlife casualties, and highlights the considerations and complications of managing wildlife casualties. It aims to encourage the reader to take a holistic view of the individual wildlife casualty in the context of the ecosystem from which it originated.
