Abstract

There is an expectation and a responsibility (moral and legal) for veterinary practices to provide good and accurate advice to members of the public who discover, report and attempt to intervene with wildlife casualties. Staff must be aware of the appropriate methods of capture, handling and transportation, including the risk of bites and scratches, and zoonotic diseases.
