Injured Animals

In the February issue of Skeffling News I published a distressing story of a deer injured on the barbed wire fence in Hodgson's Field.  Since then I've heard quite a few similar stories, all of them heartbreaking.

Then I had a phone call from Mike Wright of Golden Hope, Out Newton Road, and I began to feel optimistic about our local wildlife.  Mike had seen the article and, like many other people, was insensed by the indifference shown to the animal's suffering by the RSPCA.

The good news is that Mike wants to help if he can.  He has contacts at the Hull Animal Rescue Centre and volunteers who will come out to treat injured animals.  So if you're unfortunate enough to find an animal or bird injured and suffering please give Mike a call.  He's promised to do whatever he can to help. 

His number is 07850795765.

There will be a follow up item to this story in the March issue of Skeffling News.  Please don't miss it.  If you have any helpful suggestions or advice please use the Comments box underneath this post.
