Wildlife in Care

At HideAway Haven we rescue, rehabilitate and release our precious wildlife.  Follow the story of our kids in care.


It was a normal start to my morning, bottle and then out the back yard for my grazing time.  Mummy was on her computer when I came bounding up to the front door.  I don't normally do this as it means I am on the other side of the house, where I am not allowed to go.  At the front door there is no where to go and as Mummy came to the door I was hopping down the street.  Mummy came on after me, but I am much faster.  Mummy said that's it, this is too dangerous, I am taking Sammie to go live with Aunty Pauline, where I know she will be safe.  No sign of me.  When Mummy got home a neighbour came up and told her that she had seen a cow racing down the street.  Mummy still didn't put two and two together.  She decided to go to the bottom of the block.  As she was going down the hill there were cow hoof prints all over my track.  Mummy started walking along the fire-break calling me.   I just answered and came out like nothing was wrong, not sure why Mummy cried when she hugged me.

What really happened?  I was grazing as normal when this big cow scared me.  I couldn't get into my safe back yard because the cow was in the way, so I went the other way to the front door.  I still couldn't get in so I took off down the street, through someone's back yard and over their fence into paddock at the bottom of the block.  I was safe and not scared.  Mummy has spent hours and hours and hours making sure I know my way around here, so I knew how to get home.  Is she still going to send me to Aunty Pauline's??  I think she needs some rescue remedy!!
