A Wildlife Guardian

Justin is a true nature lover and wildlife guardian! This juvenile Paragon Falcon was trapped in a big box store for several days without food or water. It took Justin about an hour and half to locate this majestic beauty. He then set up his nets and went to work. The bird eventually flew to a window and then hid under a pallet. He was able to reach in and carefully rescue the bird with his hands.

Justin took the falcon to a rehabilitation facility licensed with the Department of Natural Resources. Instead of simply releasing the falcon to the wild and collecting his gear to call it a day, he made the falcon’s care a priority. Justin’s concern is an example of Safe Haven’s commitment to safe and humane wildlife rescue.

With it being a juvenile and having gone without food or water for a couple of days I was afraid it wouldn’t make it on its own.
