Dakota came to us 10 years ago from another rehabilitator after it was determined he was imprinted. Poor Dakota had been blown out of his nest during a windy spring day and was picked up by someone who wanted to keep him as a pet. Aside from the fact that this is breaking a federal law, the person did not know how to care for Dakota and before long he became very sick. Once he finally made it to a rehabber, Dakota made a full recovery and has spent the last nine years teaching the public, school children, various organizations and countless scouts to admire our wild neighbors from a distance and not to pick up or interfere.
