Review for Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue, , CA, USA
I love Yggdrasil!
My boyfriend and I recently moved into a great renovated apartment with lots of outdoor space behind a large house in South Berkeley. Some of our neighbors in the front house alerted the landlord about a few rats they saw on the property. The landlord is a contractor who works with my boyfriend often (he owns a custom painting company), so he asked him to set a rat trap with some peanut butter. Sadly, later in the day after setting the trap, he realized that a baby possum ate some of the peanut butter and got his hand caught in the trap up to the wrist. My boyfriend released the possum from the trap but saw that his hand was limp and oozing. The possum didn't move and my boyfriend brought him water. I heard about this while at work so my manager and I looked up some emergency animal rescues and saw that Yggdrasil was available in the Berkeley area. I gave the number to my boyfriend, he texted Yggdrasil (they instructed to text vs. call) and he heard back within 5 minutes. They assigned someone near our area to pick up the possum. A nice man came within an hour and had a box with a blanket ready for the possum. He made us feel better by saying he was delivering the possum to good hands and that possums are sturdy, resilient animals. I wrote a review for Yggdrasil on Facebook recently mentioning the possum we called about and Lila Talcott Travis got back to me with some great photos and update on our possum! Looks like things turned out great for him! I am so happy Yggdrasil does such an amazing job with wildlife that are so often abused or overlooked when injured. Please fund this nonprofit... they work from the heart.
