Find a Wildlife Rehabilitator

If you find a sick or injured animal, it is important to locate a licensed rehabilitator. Many rehabilitators specialize in caring for certain types of wildlife such as songbirds or small mammals, however the permit allows them to accept all authorized wildlife.

Happy ending for the bears from Gardner. Very healthy and off to rehabilitation by a licensed wildlife bear specialist who will release them back into the wild when they are old enough.

Two orphaned bears were treated briefly at Tufts Wildlife Clinic before being transported by MassWildlife to rehabilitation. The Worcester Telegram reported the story at bit.ly/1NAfkzA.

Wildlife Rehabilitators’ Association of Massachusetts – WRAM shared NEW- ARC (USA)‘s post.

This is a great example of why everyone should get animals to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator as soon as possible, and not try to care for these animals yourself. Proper nutrition and proper care are the key to an animals’ survival. Trained, licensed professionals are the best option for injured or orphaned wildlife to ensure their survival. Remember, treating them yourself without a proper permit is illegal in Massachusetts.

This is the difference between a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator and the general public who kept them for 6 days!!
(Kept them because they were cute)
