Forever Wild
by Kevin Mack, PAWS Wildlife Naturalist

The last installment of "Wild Again" was dedicated to the 1,200 + animals that completed their rehabilitation at PAWS and returned to the wild in 2002. Each of these individuals represents the best possible outcome of our animal care efforts. They do not, however, represent the only possible outcome. The unfortunate reality for wildlife rehabilitators is that, despite our best efforts, many patients die in our care or must be euthanized. Such was the case for many of the wild animals PAWS received in 2002. Although their last moments were spent in captivity, in my memory these individuals will remain forever wild.

The remainder of this page was intentionally left blank to represent a moment of silence for the wild beings whose lives ended at the PAWS Wildlife Center in 2002.
