Peacock

I was brought a Peacock that was very sick. The Member of the Public hoped I would be able to save him. Unfortunately he died with 2 hours of arriving. I was devastated that this spectacular bird had died. I didn’t want his death to be in-vein. So a package up his body and put him in the freezer. Every time someone came over I asked them if they would help me “pluck” the feathers. No one would help, so eventually I speant several hours plucking him. Then I wanted to make something that was fitting for his spectacular beauty. This is what I created………….

Little Rambo - Wallaroo Joey There is an Animal Angel (also a child Angel who is a teacher) in Longreach – Central Queensland & the middle of NO where. She rescues abused, and dumped, cats, kittens, dogs and puppies. Cares for them. Personally pays for all their food, care, Vet treatment, injections and desexing. In her spare time she also rescues and cares for wildlife tries to stop the BARBARIC CRUEL MASSACRE of Kangaroos. This week she ended up with 6 Macropod joeys. She is NOT allowed to take them to school (so she can feed them) or even have them in her rented house. The little Wildlife Warriors in her class her keep the secret when necessary. So this morning Animal Angel head off 420 km (260 miles) each way) to take the 6 joeys to a Licensed carer. Animal Angel has “collected” several” joeys from a Member of the Public including Rambo  (NOT Licensed Wildlife Carer). Raising orphaned wildlife is VERY specialised and NOTHING like raising puppies or kittens. This is little Rambo all snuggled up in a pouch. The Human that was raising him has NO licence and ILLEGALLY raises many Kangaroos & Wallaroos. His new adopted Mother has said it looks like he fractured his foot and it was never taken of. This may mean that he has to be euthanased. He is weights 3 kgs (6.6 pounds). And the MOP weaned him at Christmas time – 3 mths ago, so no milk. He is approx 70% under weight. The Mop didn’t have him sleeping in a pouch like he should be (his Mother would have him in the pouch for at least 6 more months). He should not have been weaned until he weight approx 8 to 10 kgs (17 to 22 pounds). He has extremely brittle bones for NOT having at least 20 mins EVERYDAY sunlight for vit plus NOT being fed a formula that is especially made for Macropods. He has no muscle tone, no “baby” fat. He also should have a huge pen to hop in to develop good strong leg & heart muscles, which he will need when he is released into the wild to get away from predators. I ask my self almost daily why humans (Members of the Public) think that they should be able to raise any wild animal.
