Weekly hospital update – Week of November 14

The hospital received 31 animals last week, bringing the total for this year to 5072.

One of the patients was a golden-crowned sparrow brought to us because its foot was stuck in a rat trap. Unfortunately, we were not able to save this sparrow because of the severity of its injuries. Snap traps are a good way to control rats, but you need to be sure the traps are placed where other animals can’t get hurt.
