A DEER NAMED ROSE WHO WAS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE "DEER-CAR COLLISION"

Ingrid Ilkiw and Rose are both resting on hay. Rose had been hit by a car and her pelvis was broken in four places. wpe1C.jpg (9574 bytes)After 3 months of rehabilitation and protection, Rose was able to stand, walk around the barn and go for short walks. Unfortunately, she panicked during hurricane Floyd, broke out of her barn, climbed a steep hill and her heart gave out.

Hooray for her life and her valiant struggle, and thank you to Ingrid of Wildlife Warriors, a brave warrior and a gentle-hearted poet. INGRID ILKIW is a wildlife rehabilitator.


HELP WILDLIFE THIS WINTER

BY MAGGIE CIARCIA, WILDLIFE REHABILITATOR

Please don't forget our wildlife during the winter. Please keep your bird feeders full and some fresh water available. (If fresh water isn't available, animals can be drawn to any antifreeze which has been left on the ground. It will kill both wildlife and domestic animals.)

Not all our feathered friends migrate and they could use some of our help this time of year. Squirrels would also appreciate some nuts and fresh fruit.

Please be careful when lighting your fireplace this winter. Often, squirrels, raccoons and birds nest in the fireplace and could be injured from the fire or smoke. Check your fireplace BEFORE starting a fire. Don't assure the animal will go up the fireplace. I've seen them come down into the fire and then into the house. It's not a pretty sight.

Also, keep an eye out for wildlife injured by hunters who couldn't hit the side of a barn, but manage to injure wildlife and leave them to suffer and die. I've already received several calls for turkey and deer with arrows in them!

If you have any questions regarding wildlife please call your local Wildlife Rehabilitator.

Editor's Note: You can call a local humane society for a list or your local police department. The game agency licenses rehabilitators, but will not allow them to collect a fee for any of their work! You can get a listing from them as well.


WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME A WILDLIFE REHABILITATOR?

The meeting will be moderated by current licensed wildlife rehabilitators who will explain the importance of saving our wildlife and what is required to join this dedicated group of volunteers. How to get licensed, the pros and cons of handling wildlife, and what types of animals are commonly seen.

A wildlife veterinarian will be there to discuss Zoonosis.
