We hope you are enjoying the articles by our columnist and Procyon Wildlife volunteer, Elizabeth Trickey. In April, we learned about:
Our miniature aliens, better known as pinky squirrels are arriving daily. Here is a little one being fed. Note these baby squirrels are hairless and blind at birth.
We also have a little muskrat in our care. To learn more about these interesting animals, click to read Procyon Wildlife volunteer, Elizabeth Trickey’s article World Rat /Muskrat Day is April 4th.
It is very rare that we ever get a muskrat in at the Centre. He was found in the middle of Livingstone St in Barrie. He doesn’t appear to be injured, he is just a little small. Check the video below to watch him eat. He is not too disturbed to have been rescued and is enjoying a healthy meal. He might think his water bowl is a pond as he sits in it.
If you would like to volunteer with us and get to know all the wildlife babies that arrive, contact us at email@example.com.
