(WXYZ) — The Michigan Humane Society rescued four calves from an unhealthy environment in western Wayne County.

Last week, the Statewide Response team received a call about four calves who looked underweight. The team deployed to the location based on the complaint and were able to rescue the calves and move them to a safe environment.

MHS says the calves came in with an upper respiratory infection, diarrhea and were underweight. Each calf was given an exam and all are currently under medical care. The calves are now active and eating well. When they are healthy, they will be placed with an organization or private adopter where they can live a long, happy and healthy life.

“The Statewide Response team’s purpose is to assist in situations like this-ones where our knowledge and experience can support our community,” said Debby MacDonald, director of Statewide Response. “In this instance, our expertise with animals of all types and familiarity with Michigan law were the key components in rescuing these calves and offering the opportunity for a better life.”

If you are concerned about the health and well-being of an animal outside of Detroit, Hamtramck or Highland Park, call the Statewide Response Team at 313-262-4022.
