Opossums are mostly solitary, nomadic roamers, so when Humane Wildlife Services received a call about noises in a church ceiling, we did not expect to find a pair of these little angels congregating in the attic.

This great blue heron with a wing injury recently came into the South Florida Wildlife Center. A non-essential bone was removed to make closing up the wound easier and to avoid infection.

Once he was flying well again, the heron was successfully released to the wild.
