Hearts and brains. A great crew of volunteers led by WCA Board member Andy Taff and President Theresa Bielawski got down and a little dirty at Spruce Up Saturday. Volunteers jacked up and rolled out to move newly built squirrel cages to their permanent pad. With brains and heart this job got done! Thanks to all the Spruce UP volunteers including Alesa, Lynn, Tim, Becki, Howard, Rick and our WCA Boardmembers. Keeping the facility clean, organized and ready to meet the needs of injured, orphan and displaced wildlife requires a wide range of skills and jobs done. Thanks to the community for stepping up for wildlife!

Next an on-going report of a goose at Mather Lake that had fishing line entangled deeply around one of its legs. Next a report of a possibly sick sea lion at the Tower Bridge. Turtle, red fox and song bird information only calls were also placed and received today. Then towards the end of the day, I had a hang up call. I always return these type of calls just incase there was an emergency. Sure enough the caller had a wildlife situation. The report was that the homeowner knew of an active raccoon nest site on his property. However, he discovered that a suspected mother raccoon had just been hit and killed by a car in front of his house. He called Animal Control to pick up the carcass and to confirm that this was a lactating female. Sure enough it was the female and he even waited a few hours to make sure a mother ... See more
