Fox needs rehab, not zoo

This young fox was seized by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) last September from an Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre volunteer.  After keeping her in solitary confinement for 9 months, MNR now says she is too “tame” to survive in the wild and that they will place her in a zoo. Full story and photo.

What can you do?

The MNR must give Katie the chance they took away from her: to be rehabilitated, released and live a free life in the wild.  If you agree, call Norm Sterling at (613) 253-1171 or e-mail him at norm_sterlingco@ontla.ola.org and let him know that you want this fox to be given that chance and ask for a response.

Please take a few moments of your time and send a brief e-mail or phone call to Norm Sterling, and copy the others listed below.  You, your family and your friends can make the difference for Katie.
