klr has an ambulance mode?

Hi Folks

I posted this up on a local forum awhile back.. thought i would pass it along since its getting close to the heat wave season again in the Northern hemisphere..

I was flying down a northern Nova Scotia woods road in ASouthbrook during a rare 32 deg heatwave ..looking for a connection trails to Lynn Mountain area i was more familiar with...

https://maps.google.ca/maps?q=South+...va+Scotia&z=15


..I spotted what was a carcass of something flipped onto its side. Not thinking any more of it i continued on for about an hour then discovered i was on a dead end trail. Going by the same spot as earlier... the "carcass" was now on its opposite side....
klr to the rescue




This guy easily fit into my tank bag.. i tried to stand him up but he would just flop over onto his side... he was very dehydrated I was about 30-40 miles from home..didn't matter..left the tank bag open no movement,...



got him home and gave some syringes of water /sugar and salt mix.



after a late night.. little buddy bounced back...





good Karma...right guys ??



After him springing back into "action" lol... i googled the likelihood of domestication.. and the right thing to do was have him returned to the wild using techniques that would see him nurtured until he would stop frequenting his feeding area {usually at sexual maturity}. The other downside was that rural road i live on down here in NB... has too much traffic ..testament to that is the dead porcupine's i see all the time.

BUT oh my.. i was getting attached.... real fast . The critters purr like a cat when you pat them.
Sooo... this was Sir Chance's new home.....

Good on you.

A few years back, one of my friends from work was riding his KLR on the morning commute and saw a young Coyote get hit in front of him.
The Coyote was laying on the side of the road in shock.
Joe layed the Coyote between himself and the gas tank and rode in with him.
You can imagine our amazement when he pulled up with the Coyote and blood over his tank and jacket.
He managed the animal throughout the day and delivered him to a rescue after work, and he is good to go now, rehabilitated.

Nature can be a cruel bitch sometimes - there is some good Karma on the way for you! This made my day.

Heartwarming little rescue!
While in temp housing years ago, our trash bins were frequented by a family of these critters almost nightly. One night, we parked a bin outside our front door & when the rustling began, my young boys & I cracked open the door to watch.....

Papa 'coon was the size of a toddler!

That is really great. Glad you were able to rescue the little critter. They are so cute especially when they are little.

Way to go! Great story! My sister used to work at the wildlife centre you took it to. I can gaurantee he got well taken care of. Might have even been her that was taking care of him! When did you say it happened?

chance

HI Folks
There was a lot of comments on taking the chance back to the same spot i found him.. in all reality that would have been his destiny... until
I talked to the folks at the Atlantic wildlife refuge on the phone before i made the decision to take him there. They had already raised and set free more than 20 raccoons... They have /had no interest in domesticating animals and spent some time schooling me on the release to the wild techniques they use.
