In May 2008 the centre received a litter of orphaned woodchucks. Their mom had been hit by a car and the young were dropped off at a vet clinic in Winnipeg. PWRC was contacted and we were more than happy to help these little guys out. Over the next few months we had the challenge of providing enough ample fresh foliage and vegetables to keep their appetites satisfied and help them grow into healthy young woodchucks. The woodchucks were finally released in the Birds Hill area in August 2008.
Summer 2008 was a busy one for the PWRC. The centre received hundreds of phone calls from concerned members of the public and took in 230 animals, including orphaned squirrels and woodchucks to injured pigeons and Eagles!
