WAUSAU (WAOW)-- The Raptor Education Group in Antigo hopes hunters will donate deer hearts. The hearts are used by staff at the rehabilitation center to provide nutritious meals for the birds in their care.
"It's an excellent source of food.. as you know mice and rats don't have fat , so it's a near perfect food for our birds," said Marge Gibson, Executive Director of the REG.
A number of drop off sites are set up across Central Wisconsin and also in Milwaukee.
REG is a non-profit organization which cares for sick and injured birds. Right now, 26 Eagles are housed there.
