Bill Would Affect NJ Wildlife Rehabilitators

The following is a photo and copy of a letter from a resident of Warren, N J: “Enclosed are two photos I took of a doe who got caught in a home-made trap. I couldn’t get any help for her in my area. I called the H.S.U.S. Mid-Atlantic Region; they referred me to someone else who never called me back. She had a yearling with her & stayed for a day in my back woods, but have not seen her again”.

Sadly, the number of wildlife rehabilitators in N. J. has diminished quickly over the past year. This creates a problem for local pounds, shelters, municipalities and citizens who find sick, injured and orphaned wildlife that need assistance.

Senator Ellen Karcher has introduced S.2325 which establishes a N J Wildlife Rehabilitation Licensing Study Commission & temporarily expands the scope of “cooperator permit” to include rehabilitation of other kinds of wildlife besides game animals. Assemblyman Anthony Chiappone has introduced A.3939, an identical bill in the Assembly. Please write to them thanking them for their interest in helping wildlife and addressing the concerns for animals that need assistance.
