Deer at Animal Nation

Dr. Somesh N. Kaushik's will host an educational lecture, What To Do If You Find Injured Wildlife, as part of a community outreach by Animal Nation. The lecture will be held outdoors at his Cross River clinic at 1 p.m. and again at 3 p.m. on June 5. Reservations are required. Admission is by donation to Animal Nation.

The presentation by Megan Apicelli, a New York State-licensed wildlife rehabilitator, will cover what to do (and not do) if you find an injured animal, how to determine if an animal is in need of rescue, how to avoid being bitten and what to do if you are, urgent overnight care and emergency resources, and supplies to carry with you for encounters.
