Such a crane chick was brought to us
On July 14th the Imeloomade Selts, a society that helps wild animals in distress, received a call that in the Kaelas village in Pärnu County a lonely crane chick had appeared in the farm yard.
The neighbourhood had been searched but adults to whom to return their offspring was not to be found anywhere.
The wildlife helpers expected a half-metre tall angry fighter such as young cranes may be at this time. The surprise was great when the bird was handed to them across the gate in a small box.
And really, it was a crane chick about one week old. The chick was in good health, well fed and not injured.
