...I said no, no, no."
Today, while my son was jogging, he was joined by this little girl. She jogged along with him all the way home. Her mother had been killed beside the road and she was looking for new friends. As many animals as we already have and as adorable as she was, we knew we were not equipped to raise and rehabilitate a deer. Thank goodness I was able to reach a very nice woman who does wildlife rehabilitation exclusively and this little girl was soon on her way to rehab. Julie Miller of Enid, Oklahoma is a federal and state licensed wildlife rehabilitator. She takes in all kinds of wildlife and after care and rehabilitation returns them to the wild. Julie currently has 4 deer, this one makes 5, raccoons, skunks, foxes, bats, owls, quail and numerous other animals in her care. What a hard, hectic and rewarding job it must be.
