well, STILL waiting for the lovely man from FL dept of wildlife to call me back (3 days and counting) about my permits. So far the baby mockingbird is doing exceptionally well (named her scout after "to kill a mockingbird" ) but now i'm not sure she can be released......so i need a wildlife as pet permit. PLUS due to some not so nice people who've been squawking about her (my employers have been remarkably nice about her being in the office all day every day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> ) i have to get a rehab permit as well..... i should probably have one anyway as the husband seems to have a knack for finding me baby birds ( we rehabbed a crow last year too) Anyone out there have these permits or know how hard they are to get

My husband and I found a canadian goose with a club foot and a deformed wing.... we called the Arkansas dept of wildlife, and they are saying that he (husband) has to take some classes from them, take a test, and pay a small fee in order to get a rehab permit. We are going to go for it. Our vet said that he and his partner would be willing to give us a price break on any services our rehab animals may need, once we give them a copy of the permit. As soon as it all gets taken care of, I'll post again and let you know how it all came out. Sometimes things that seem this easy.... turn out to be really difficult. We'll see!!!
