Kirsten Hirschler of Westford is a licensed rehabilitator for wild animals. Here (top photo) she's shown with an owl she rescued recently, and (second photo) with a fawn rescued earlier this year. Groton Animal Control Officer George Moore does not retrieve injured animals himself but sends Kirsten to the rescue. Kirsten notes that found deer have to go through the Environmental Police and there are only one or two rehabbers in the state with a special license to care for deer.
Sheila Devereaux (third photo) is a Groton resident and is newly licensed to rehabilitate injured wild animals; she's pictured with baby racoons she rescued recently. Sheila recently assisted Kirsten in releasing a rehabilitated Canada goose back to the Groton School pond (bottom photo).
