UW regents consider plan for wildlife center


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- University of Wisconsin System regents are considering plans to build a rehabilitation center for injured wildlife in Oconomowoc.

A proposal in front of the regents would allow the Wildlife In Need Center, a nonprofit group, to build the facility on land owned by UW-Waukesha.

The group would pay for the center with private donations and give the building to UW-Waukesha, which in turn would grant the group exclusive use of the facility.

Plans call for building a clinic that would include multiple treatment rooms and storage chambers capable of handling a range of mammals, birds and reptiles. The building would also include a research laboratory.

The regents will consider the plan this week during a meeting at UW-Eau Claire.
