Hats off to ODFW
ODFW is Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
On Sunday, the little doe in the attached photo showed up for lunch with what appears to be a poultry feeder attached to her front hoof. She showed up again today (Tuesday) with it still attached. I called ODFW and explained what I had, and asked if they could help, or at least direct me to someone who could.
Within an hour, 2 of their people showed up with a tranquilizer gun and spent the better part of 3 hours trying to knock her down to help her.
Unfortunately, for the time being, the score is Doe - 1, ODFW - 0, but they asked me to set out the chow bucket and try to get her to come back in for round 2 tomorrow.
I was just really darned pleased at their response. Really appreciated their attitude and concern. Kind'a cool in my book.
