It is sad when you don't even have time to make a blog entry huh?

19 July - 2am call to fetch new orphan 600g wombat pinkie found on road without mother, manged wombat reported in as severe.

20 July - 870g new orphan wombat pinkie called in and collected. 

21 July - 11kg female caught by member of the public and caged overnight - therefore mutilated her face trying to get out. Wombat now at sanctuary. 

23 July - 5 Manged wombats reported in. 

24 July - New 2kg wombat joey called in and brought to sanctuary. 

25 July - several manged wombats reported in from one area in ACT

28 July - more manged wombats reported in in ACT and 2 more reported in in NSW

30 July - 2 x 4.5kg wombats removed from so called wildlife carer. May I remind people yet again that getting a piece of paper after 6 hours and allowing you to take these animals in to care does NOT make you good with them. And it does NOT give you the right to treat them as you wish with complete stupidity and ignorance, at the expense of the animals. It is wrong and cruel. Yet because you CAN sit and 6 hours later have a so called wildlife licence, people are able to. System is so wrong. 
New arrival 4kg wombat brought to the sanctuary after mother killed early evening. 4 Manged wombats reported in.
