The Sulpur Crested Cockatoo was rescued on Thursday night, its foot was tangled in bailing twine and the bailing twine was tangled round the branch, the injuries the bird sustained was a broken toe and a laceration across the foot. The cockie is now in the care of The Haven, Wildlife Sanctuary, 14kms from Yea.

Many thanks to Wildlife Victoria for sending Nigel of Nigel's Animal Rescue Service to our aide.

Many thanks also to Nigel ( who drove 2 1/2 hours from Melbourne on Thursday arriving round 6pm, within what seemed minutes he scaled the oak tree 20 meters up and managed to release the bird from the branch once on the ground Nigel cleared the twine from the birds foot.

Finally thanks to Andrew Vos of The Haven, Wildlife Sanctuary ( Andrews support through this rescue was wonderful and it's nice to know the Cockie is now in his care.
