Rescued and recovered!
On the 5th of July Bella, a 50 year old Cassowary was struck by a car and presumed dead, so the car just kept on driving. This incident happened near the Garners Beach Cassowary Rehabilitation Centre. Luckily for Bella, rescuer Ingrid Marker found Bella limping on the side of the road with injuries to the eye and left hip. We are sure Bella is thankful for the efforts of the rescuers involved: Ingrid Marker from Mission Beach, Pat from Tropical Tully Veterinarian Clinic, Sharon and Steve from Mission Beach Wildlife Carers, EHP Senior Wildlife Officer, Sunny Wardlaw and Shane O’Brien from Garners Beach Facility. She has made a full recovery and has been released, although she hasn’t been sighted recently.
