Javelina Sisters

Found on the side of a dark desert highway, these two Javelina sisters had been separated from their herd and were very upset. They were brought to Desert Cry where the cactus needles that covered them were removed, and the wounds treated with antibiotic ointment. Unfortunately a needle went into the eye of one of the babies, leaving it blind. She stuck closely to her sister; leaning on her with the blind eye toward her. They quickly learned to drink formula from a dish and began to gain weight. Before they became too accustomed to captivity, they were transferred to another wildlife rehabilitation facility to be introduced into a new family (herd). Even the little one-eyed Javelina did well, and they were all released back to the wild life they were meant to live.
