Although “baby season” has slowed down a bit, we’re still busy around the clock at NY Wildlife Rescue. The cottontails are still breeding, as well as a few of our other more prolific species. Older babies are venturing out and getting into trouble. Adults and old-timers run into difficulties and wind up in our care. Then there are the turtles — we are seeing more turtles this year than ever before. Please, drivers, give turtles a brake! They can’t scurry out of your way like a squirrel, after all.
Here are a few of the patients from the week of July 2nd through 8th.
July 8th, Saturday, is a fun day for Wes, Kelly, and the Wildlife Alive raptors. They will be in the Summit/Jefferson area all day, for a show with the Summit Youth Commission, and on display at Jefferson Heritage Days. If you’re in the area, stop by and say hello! You can’t miss the Wildlife Alive! display trailer!
