Letter to the editor: DNR uncaring

Monday, October 7, 2013 - 8:48 am

I want to thank the DNR for their one-minded method of saving animals; you wanted nothing to do with a squirrel when it did not even have his eyes open and was about 3 days old.

So a family decided to save him and feed him every two hours all night long, and guess what? They saved him.

They tried to get a permit to keep him because he became very attached to the family. He was a very healthy animal with no reason to be taken from this family. But again you decided that because this family went to the news media to help him stay with the family, you decided to snatch him from them and make them an example by giving them a ticket for helping this animal.

I will never donate a thing again to the DNR of Indiana for these irresponsible actions.

Thank you, Sara and your family for saving Rocky.

Roger Clark
