Wild Instincts in Need of Fish

Wild Instincts, the only wildlife rehabilitation center in the Northwoods

permitted to treat ALL native wildlife species, needs your help!

With ten times the normal patient load for this time of year they are in

desperate need of fish.

If you want an excuse to go fishing, their wild patients would appreciate

it and so would Wild Instincts. Whole fish is best but they will also take

filets from the corners of your freezer. And if you find some venison in

the shadows there, they also need venison.

Any questions can be directed to 715-362-WILD (9453) or
