Wildlife Patient of the Week: Northern Garter Snake

Northern Garter Snake POTW 225

Patient 16-1548 is a Northern Garter Snake who was hit by a lawn mower in someone’s yard. 

He has a large laceration on his body and has had the tip of his tail amputated. 

Garter snakes are great to have in your backyard habitat as they like to eat slugs, grubs and small rodents.

Found a seal you think needs help?

Harbor seal 225

It’s natural to want to help wild animals who appear to be in need, particularly at this time of year when baby season’s in full swing.

But many do not need our help, and in the case of marine mammals, it’s against the law to touch them. If you believe you’ve found a seal in need, call the West Coast Marine Mammal Stranding Network Hotline at 1.866.767.6114 or the NOAA Seal Hotline at 1.866.767.6114.
