Rehabbing Rules For Domestic & Wild Waterfowl
When visiting the pond you may notice injured waterfowl, please report it to the office. Be advised some we can care for and some we can not due to federal law. There are two different types of waterfowl Domestic and wild.
Domestic waterfowl- can be rehabbed in house at the pond.
Any species listed in list two on the right .
Wild waterfowl- have to be sent out to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator it is illegal by federal law for anyone not licensed to care for them, breaking the law could result in major fines, closing of a facility or even jail time.
Examples: Wild waterfowl listed in list one on right
If we have an injured bird that is wild The Anglers do not have a licence rehabilitator on stuff, we use who we believe is the best in that field Cindy Page of Page Wildlife Center. The injured waterfowl will be kept there until it is releasable. If the injury is severe and the fowl is not expected to recover it will be properly euthenized by a vet.
