Our Coatimundi Rescue - Picture taken after recovering from injuriesThe two coati mundi that we have were from a person in Arkansas that wanted to de-claw them but did not want to pay a vet to do it so she took a pair of metal side-cutters and cut off all of their first knuckles. Surprisingly enough, they did not bleed to death but became extremely infected.

 

We are not sure how she got our number but she called and asked for help. She found a volunteer to drive them 8 hours to the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport where they were flown immediately by Continental Airlines (thanks Continental!!) to the Cleveland Airport. We picked them up there and took them straight to the vet from the Akron Zoo.

 

At this point neither coatimundi had a hair one on them, as their skin was inflamed, red with infection. He put them in oxygen incubators and started antibiotics. Next they took one of their healthy coatimundi from the Akron Zoo and drew bone marrow from it and injected the two sick coatimundi.
