Roseville Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Overwhelmed With Injured Animals


COL,MAN TALKED ABOUT THE NEED TO ADDRESS ISSUES OF RACE WITHIN THE COMMUNITY. WELL IT’S DURING THESE FIRST WEEKS OF SPRING THE WILDLIFE REFUGE CENTER IN ROSEVILLE GETS A RUSH OF
PATIENTS. PEOPLE BRING SICK AND INJURED ANIMAL THEY FOUND IN THE WILD THERE FOR TREATMENT AND REHAB STATION. SOMETIMES, THOUGH, THE NUMBER OF ANIMAL IS
OVERWHELMING. AS REG CHAPMAN SHOWS US, THERE’S A WAY YOU CAN HELP ANIMAL IN THE WILD WITHOUT TAKING THEM OUT THEIR ENVIRONMENT. Reporter: THEY COME FROM ALL OVER: SQUIRRELS, RABBITS, EVEN MALLARD DUCKS, SOME ABANDONED, OTHERS
HURT. PEOPLE FIND THEM IN UNUSUAL PLACES, AND THE WILDLIFE REFUGE CENTER EVENTUALLY ENDS UP BEING THEIR HOME AWAY FROM HOME. IT’S A BOY.
HE’S VERY MAD WITH ME. Reporter: THE WILDLIFE REFUGE CENTER IS AN
ANIMAL HOSPITAL. IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THE SICK AND INJURED GET HELP, PEOPLE NEED A LITTLE GUIDANCE FIGURING OUT WHAT THE LITTLE ONES NEED SAVING. ESPECIALLY THE LITTLE ANIMAL SHOWING UP IN PEOPLE’S BACKYARDS THIS SPRING. Reporter: THIS TEN-WEEK-OLD RED FOX WAS FOUND ABANDONED NEAR A DUMPSTER. IT’S THIS TIME OF YEAR THE CENTER SEES MORE AND MORE ANIMAL IN NEED OF MEDICAL CARE. Reporter: OVERHUNDRED ANIMAL A DAY. IN MAY, JUNE, JULY, EACH OF THOSE MONTHS WE’LL TAKE IN ABOUT 2,500 ANIMAL. Reporter: PHIL JENNY SAYS MANY PEOPLE ARE UNSURE WHAT TO DO WHEN THEY COME ACROSS BABY SQUIRRELS, RABBITS WHO APPEAR TO BE ON THEIR OWN. IT’S IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE IT IS TRULY
ABANDONED. A LOT OF ADULTS WON’T GO BACK TO THE NESTS, BECAUSE THEY’RE AFRAID THEY’LL ATTRACT
PREDATORS. SO THEY’LL ONLY GO MAYBE TWICE A DAY. SO PEOPLE WILL SEE THEM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY AND THINK THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG. OFTEN THERE’S NOT. Reporter: AN WHEN PEOPLE STUMBLE ACROSS THESE ANIMAL, THEY SHOULD ASK FOR
HELP. WE URGE PEOPLE TO CALL US FIRST IF THEY HAVE ANY
KIND OF A QUESTION. Reporter: WRC STAFF CAN HELP PEOPLE FIGURE OUT IF THEY SHOULD INTERVENE OR LET MOTHER NATURE DO HER
THING. STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS CAN HELP AND TELL YOU WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND AN ABANDONED
