If you live anywhere near the forest fires that are decimating the Northwest, please be aware that the animals are fleeing the fires and they may show up in your yards. If you see them, don’t panic, let them pass through. They are frightened, displaced, exhausted and have lost their homes. They need to refuel and feel some semblance of safety. Make sure to bring your animals in at night and let the wild ones pass through.
All of us at Wildlife Images Rehabilitation & Education Center would like to give a shout out to all the men and women fighting all of these fires!
