Baby Sandhill Crane Rescued

Each day is a different day here at Lake Veterinary Clinic. We never know what kind of situation might come through the front door.  Yesterday, our front desk receptionist Jo-Ann Grillo rescued a baby Sandhill crane that had been hit by a car. With the help of some other concerned animal lovers who helped slow traffic down, and protect her from the baby’s parents, she was able to scoop him up and bring him in for care.

He suffered a broken leg, but Dr. Pryor was able to do surgery and pin it. Now we’ll wait to see how he recovers.

We predominantly treat household pets, but every once in awhile someone rescues a wild animal which provides us with a new challenge.
