Instructions where to call as an image file


If you think a wild animal needs help (e.g. injured animal, orphaned wild animal), you should call the hotline of the City of Vienna at (41-1) 4000-49090 (daily from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.)  For bats the University of Veterinary Medicine continues to be in charge. 

You can find more details (in German) in the leaflet WILDTIERE in Not 1 and on the website  Wildtiere in der Stadt 2


Some additional external numbers for specific cases can be found here 3.
