Wild Instincts: saving animals in the Northwoods


TOWN OF NEWBOLD (WAOW)--The Northwoods is filled with animals, and now there is a new place where those that are orphaned or injured can find help.

Mark Naniot has been taking care of animals for decades. He chose to open Wild Instincts to continue that legacy. The rehab center located in the Northwoods is a work in progress, but animals are already receiving care.

From fawns to turtles, there are new animals coming each day. "Wildlife doesn't come with an information tag, so a lot of times you have to use a kind of a shotgun approach and treat it for several different things because you don't know what happened," said Naniot.

He hopes to have the facility fully functional in a few months, with areas to take care of injured ducks, deer, bears and other Wisconsin wildlife.

However, a lot of the progress depends on funds. Wild Instincts is about four months into the non-profit application process, so all of the money needed to take care of animals is coming from donations and Naniot's pocket.
