Busy year for Minnesota wildlife rehab center

Publish date:

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota helped a record number of animals this year. Minnesota Public Radio reports the emergency center in Roseville treated more than 8,870 animals -- that's 200 more than the 2010 record.

The staff treats any animal that's brought in, including squirrels, trumpeter swans and crows. "Most of the time the treatment is rest and feeding, just like humans need when they have flu," said Executive Director Phil Jenni.
