Operation WildLife has been providing rehabilitation and veterinary services to injured and orphaned wild animals in northeast Kansas for almost 20 years.
Spring is an extremely busy time for the organization because of all the baby wildlife that are brought to them. There were more than 100 baby birds, squirrels, rabbits, possums, etc. when KCTV5's Brad Stephens and photographer Greg Milota visited.
Ninety-nine percent of the animals brought to them have been injured by man or something man-made. A lot of the birds brought in were hit by cars. An owl one worker showed Stephens will probably have to be euthanized because it flew into a soccer net in someone's backyard.
Operation WildLife receives no state or federal funding - all their money comes from public donations.
