Timber, unfortunately, did not survive her ordeal.
We received the results of her bloodwork last night, showing that she was suffering from acute septicemia that was not previously apparent as well as some preexisting liver damage had not yet created symptoms. With these complications amidst everything else, she passed away in her sleep overnight.
We did absolutely everything our team and veterinarians could do to save her. From the swift reaction to her injuries to providing all of the veterinary care needed (regardless of the expense) – it just wasn’t enough.
Timber was a treasured member of our sanctuary family and her loss hits all of us very hard. We truly appreciate everyone’s support that helped us to do absolutely everything we could do.
One of the hardest things about running a sanctuary is outliving the animals we rescue. Even after 22 years, losing one of the animals never gets easier, they are all members of the family.
Thank you again for being a member of the Forest Animal Rescue family.
