The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (WRC) is located in Roseville, MN. It is a non-profit, wildlife medical hospital that treats animals of all kinds. Each year they treat over 13,000 animals of more than 185 different species. They had four young Franklin’s Ground Squirrels that were ready to be released. I was contacted because, on my website, I had photos of this species taken in northern Minnesota and that’s where WRC wanted these squirrels released.
