Wildlife in Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation (WINNOR) is a non-profit that rescues injured and sick wildlife in the New York City area. Among the animals they have saved are the offspring of Pale Male, the world famous Fifth Avenue Red Tail Hawk.
Despite being a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator in operation for over a decade, the Town of Oyster Bay, Long Island is threatening to shut WINORR down.
Following alleged anonymous complaints from nearby property owners, town officials charged WINORR with keeping "dangerous animals" in a residential area in violation of town ordinance.
"Dangerous animals" like ducks, turkeys, owls hawks and baby foxes.
Tell Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto to drop all charges immediately and stop unfairly targeting WINORR in this suburban witch hunt.
