Last night when Liz reached out to Valerie about a badly injured Great Egret that was wandering around in her Jax Beach neighborhood, she didnt realize the active part she would play in his rescue. Armed with some quick pointers from Valerie, Liz and her husband Johnny enlisted the help of a few neighbors to coral the bird into their garage. The egret was safe from predation or another car strike, and Valerie picked him up this morning. Sadly, the beautiful bird's wing injury was very severe. Fortunately the wonderful staff at River Regional Animal Emergency & Referral Center were available on a Sunday morning to ease the egret's suffering via a compassionate euthanasia. Thank you Liz and Johnny ...and Joleen and Dr. Cadieu at River Regional as well!
