Sick or Injured Wild Animals


If you find a sick or injured wild animal, including kangaroos, contact your nearest veterinarian or wildlife care organisation as soon as possible so that it may receive appropriate treatment. Wild animals become stressed by handling, so seek expert advice before handling an injured animal. Try to minimise the amount of exposure the injured animal has to people and loud noises. Do not attempt to feed or treat it unless you have specialist knowledge or training.
