Cuts could bring quick death to animals

Wildlife News

 

Autistic children, orphaned seal pups, senior citizens, high school athletes, battered women and injured bald eagles -- it's a diverse group hit by cuts to provincial government grants, including the North Island's Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS).

MARS is among the small wildlife groups relying heavily on provincial grants which are now faced with plugging big holes in their budgets.

Less money could mean that severely injured birds would be euthanized sooner, rather than incur expensive rehabilitation bills, said Maj Birch, founder of MARS, which lost its $25,000 gaming grant.

"We may have to make decisions to put them down humanely sooner rather than try to rehabilitate with the costs involved in keeping them for the long-term," she said. "That's something we don't even want to look at. Our goal is to try and help wildlife so when you have to try and make decisions about putting them down just because you don't have the funds to care for them, it's difficult. But you hate to say it, you have to look at the bottom line."
