This baby bunny was found in Columbia Falls with darts in both eyes. It is was blinded as a result. With gentle handling for daily treatments, this baby is less fearful and sweet despite trying to adapt to a darkened world because of a darkened heart.
A Cooper’s Hawk in Columbia Falls was not so lucky as it was killed by the blow dart.
