The events of this story unfolded during a vibrant and balmy summer, where the air carried a refreshing warmth.The birds were up early and were heard throughout the day with their wonderful singing.
I put on a dress and went to the lake. It’s incredibly beautiful there in the morning. There was calm and quiet water in the reservoir, and a small fog towed over it. Small drops of dew could be seen on the grass. There was only one path leading to the end. To reach the lake, it was necessary to pass through the edge of the forest thicket.
When I was walking to the lake this time, I saw a female bear with a bear cub. In order not to scare them, I quietly sat down near a tree and decided to wait until the animals left.
In our village, people were not afraid of bears; they often showed themselves to people. However, I decided that I needed to be careful.
I didn’t manage to hide well, and the bear noticed me. She started waving toward me while pushing her cub forward.
I saw that the baby had a wound. I looked closer, and I noticed a big splinter. They probably couldn’t get it out by themselves, so the bear decided to come to me for help. I tσσƙ the animal in my arms, and I ρulled the sρlinter σut with σne sharρ mσve. The bear hooted, and its mother came running to us again. It ended well; I helped the bear, and its mother didn’t hurt me.
I guess a lot of people will say “You can’t do that”, but in your village, no one’s afraid of bears. There are no hunters; bears are often fed, so they never touch humans either.
Wild animals are an integral part of the natural world and play a crucial role in maintaining ecosystem balance. However, like all living creatures, they are susceptible to a range of health issues that can impact their quality of life and ability to survive in the wild. In this article, we’ll discuss six common symptoms that wild animals often suffer from and some treatment methods that can help alleviate these issues.
Malnutrition is a widespread issue that affects many wild animals, particularly those that struggle to find sufficient food sources or those that rely on human-provided food. Malnutrition can cause a range of symptoms, including weight loss, lethargy, and a weakened immune system, making animals more susceptible to other health issues. Treatment methods for malnutrition include providing proper nutrition through food sources or dietary supplements, such as protein supplements, vitamin supplements, mineral supplements, and antibiotics (if malnutrition is caused by an underlying infection).
Access to clean water can be a significant challenge for wild animals, especially during periods of drought or when water sources are polluted. Dehydration can cause a range of symptoms, including lethargy, dry mouth, sunken eyes, and other signs of physical distress. Providing clean water sources and/or electrolyte solutions, such as Pedialyte or Gatorade, can help alleviate dehydration. Oral rehydration salts and probiotics can also aid in water absorption and promote gut health, while severe cases of dehydration may require IV fluids.
Parasites such as fleas, ticks, and worms are common in wild animals and can cause a range of symptoms, including itching, hair loss, and weight loss. These parasites can also transmit diseases, putting animals at risk of other health issues. Treatment methods for parasites include medication, such as deworming medication (e.g., ivermectin, fenbendazole) and flea and tick medication (e.g., Frontline, Revolution), and environmental control measures to reduce the risk of infestation. Probiotics and immune-boosting supplements, such as echinacea and garlic, can also promote gut health and improve the immune system to help prevent and combat parasite infections.
