baby the crane update
- Baby the crane made it to the wildlife rehabilitator's in Silt just fine
She had to make a stop first at a veterinarians in Grand Junction, but
got a clean bill of health. Nancy, the rehabber, is going to put a
chicken in with her for company. (baby grew up around the chickens, I
Nancy fed her the usual cat food, but added some chunks of fish and one
5" whole fish (smelt). Baby dipped the fish in the water, then into the
cracked corn. Breaded fish! She ate the whole thing in one bite. They
are trying to slowly wean her off of cat food.
NBC Nightly News called early yesterday, they wanted to do a story on
baby. The man was from LA but was in Evergreen and happened to catch the
story in the Denver Post. Too bad baby was gone by then, because the
publicity would have assured baby got a great home.
