First responders saved a baby mountain lion that was found wandering aimlessly on the roadside while the Zogg fire continued to ravage Redding, California.
Countless animals are being injured and even dying as their homes are burned to the ground.
Mountain lions, which are known to be fast and nimble, have a good chance to escape … But what about their babies?
Take a look at this post from SHASCOM-911 …
The first responders went out of their way to show another living creature kindness by taking the cub to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife where it was treated to some steaks.
But this wasn’t the only wild animal that needed help.
The Redding Police Department reported about a black bear that was injured in the midst of the fire.
Officers worked to get the big animal tranquilized so that he could be brought to a facility in Sacramento for treatment.
The good news is that both of these animals are now safe and will recover.
The bad news is that the fires are still going on. Nearly four million acres — including over 8,000 structures — have burned across California in 2020.
Many families and people have been evacuated from their homes. As you can imagine, the stress from the situation — along with the challenges of the global pandemic — is taking its toll on all of them.
At Karmagawa, we are so proud of the first responders that continue to put their lives on the line to help the people and animals that are being affected by the devastation.
These workers are real heroes!
Unfortunately, the problems aren’t over … so we will keep praying for them.
We started a fundraiser to help out. Will you join us by donating?
Your donations will go to help firefighters and families affected by the fire. It will also help pay for the vet bills of animals that were burnt and saved by great charities like UC Davis Veterinary Medicine.
Once again … please think about giving for this important cause. The people and animals on the west coast need our help. Link is here.
