Living around animals: Know the facts | Letter to the Editor
Bear season is upon us. To help with human-bear interactions, please feed dogs and cats inside. Empty bird feeders and suet trays. Secure garbage cans. Use hot wire or electric netting around gardens, bee hives and livestock.
When walking in bear country have the breeze at your back, watch for signs and make noise. Leash dogs if they are not under complete voice control.
Also, where did the rumor come from that wildlife rehabilitation facilities euthanize all wild birds? Most rehabs euthanize only for mercy — the animal is suffering and has no hope of recovery. Wolftown’s policy remains the same as it has always been. We rehab if there is a chance of recovery. We also consult with our vets and other rehabbers.
We do put animals into programs for education if there is a spot for them and if they cannot be released due to some handicap. But realize educational animals must be fed and cared for. This money must come from the general public.
