Thank you to Laureen Straw who reached out to Wildlife Watch following the article that appeared in People.

Vinny Nunu, was a little bear in NYS who was nursed back to health after he was hit by a car that also killed his mom.

Sadly, the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) removed him from the rehab facility where he was staying and he has not been heard from.  We hope this mystery can be solved by the next issue.

Noble and compassionate wildlife rehabilitators need to be able to protect the wildlife that they are caring for without interference and the oppressive authority of those in the business of seeing the value of wild animals only for hunting.
