Cold, snow keep Tufts wildlife veterinarians busy this season

Veterinarian Florina Tseng of Tufts University’s wildlife clinic says the winter is usually a bit slower for wildlife cases, but cold and heavy snow this year are keeping things busy. Birds and other wild animals are being displaced by storms and frozen bodies of water, so they are starving, freezing or being preyed upon by other animals. Dr. Tseng said cases are up by 50% for the year. Star Tribune (Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.)/The Associated Press (2/25)
