ROSEVILLE (AP) – An emergency wildlife treatment center in Roseville helped a record number of animals in 2012.

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota treated more than 8,870 animals. That’s 200 more than the previous record set in 2010.

Executive Director Phil Jenni says the center’s staff treats any animal that’s brought in. This time of year, the center sees more trumpeter swans with lead poisoning. Jenni says that treatment is long and expensive, costing more than $50 a day.

He also says many crows showed signs of West Nile virus in 2012.

Jenni also says children are the ones who often bring in sick or injured baby animals. He says that experience can have an impact on how they view the world.
