Hank didn’t make it. Despite the efforts of some kind and dedicated volunteers, he died last night. Gina said that although they weren’t able to x-ray him, they suspect that he had some internal injuries. He was emaciated and too weak for the antibiotics to have any effect. I’m sad that our neighborhood lost such a beautiful animal, but happy to know that we have such caring people living here.
I’ve dealt with the Alabama Wildlife Center on several occasions and I hope to interact with them again in the future. Thanks for the many inquiries about Hank. Apparently he was suffering and I’m happy that he is in a peaceful place now. Animals can’t speak for themselves. It’s up to us to listen with our hearts. Yes, that sounds a little sappy, but that’s my mood at the moment. Take a minute to check out the AWC site and if you’re feeling generous, think about giving a small donation to help their efforts. http://www.awrc.org/
Thanks again to all who helped and those who cared about his story.
