Some of us have run into the dilemma of dealing with an abandoned or injured wild animal. I don't mean "wild" like a tiger or elephant, I mean a non-domesticated animal like a fox, fawn or a turkey vulture. What do you do? That's why Wildwoods Rehabilitation exists. Come behind the scenes at Wildwoods and see some of the animals while you learn more.
This is really cool. Brian Kontio started taking photos 3 years ago of wildlife by setting up his own home made trail cameras. His point and shoot cameras hooked up to a motion sensor device, allows better than average trail camera images. These photos were all taken in The Northland, and it's stunning to see how many different rare animals were filmed.
I am a self-proclaimed mammal lover and when it's a baby I melt even more. There is a wonderful place that exists in our community that strives for the well being of our wild life, especially the babies. Now that it's spring the will be seeing more and that has prompted Wildwoods Wildlife Rehabilitation to throw an most unique baby shower.
The breeding season of a turkey vulture starts in March and continues into June. One local turkey vulture decided our garage looked alluring and ended up injuring itself to the point it couldn't fly. We decided to get him help from a local wildlife rehab center. Watch the hilarious and daring capture and transport here.
This is a one in a million shot. These photos came from far east Russia where they have been setting up wildlife cameras to monitor engendered Amur Tigers in the Lazoovskii State Nature Preserve. However, the camera caught something even more rare, an eagle attacking a deer.
Just west of Shell Lake, Wisconsin Chronic Wasting Disease (or CWD) was found in a wild doe. The DNR will now do more extensive testing in the area and try to identify more cases.
But what are you supposed to do if you see a deer with CWD in the Shell Lake area? Here's an answer straight from the DNR.
