A Scared & Lonely Little Orphaned
Striped Skunk


Little Skunk with his toy

     This little boy was only a few weeks old when he was found sitting atop his dead mother in the middle of the road. She had been hit by a car and died instantly, and this little baby didn't know what to do, so he stayed with her.

     Luckily some good samaritans came across the scene and dragged the mother's body to the side of the road so that the baby was out of traffic. Over the nest 36 hours these kind people drove by the scene several times to check to see if the baby had moved on, but he was still with his dead mother. Finally, they found Wild Things Sanctuary! We were able to go and collect the little one. He was very dehydrated, but that was the easiest problem to treat. Baby skunks are among the most playful of baby animals, and this little one refused to play. He sat quietly in his box all day and night. He was given a skunk toy, but still, he did not want to play.

   But soon more baby skunks came to Wild Things. It was unclear what had happened to their mothers, but they were found in a housing development about to be stoned by a few unfriendly members of the public. Wild Things was alerted and the two little girls were also brought into rehabilitation. After the standard quarantine period, these babies were united and within hours the lonley little boy began to play and play and squeak to his heart's delight. Friendship had made him happy once again. All three were released successfully.

Mission Statement
Wild Things Sanctuary (WTS) is dedicated to helping native wildlife through rescuing and rehabilitating debilitated and orphaned/displaced animals until they are ready for release back into the wild. Eventually, WTS is also aiming to provide a sanctuary for non-releasable native animals.

WTS is also committed to improving the well-being of wildlife through public education; focusing on how humans can sagely and peacefully coexist with native wildlife, and on wildlife’s importance to man and the environment.

1st Baby of 2011!

WTS just received its first baby squirrel. It was found in North Carolina. The finder brought it home to NY and was smart to know it needed special care. I don't like raising babies alone. Any rehabbers near Ithaca who have another little squirrel to grow up with this one?
