Wet Mountain Wildlife Rehab offers bath time for orphaned cubs


WETMORE, Colo. (KDVR) – The Wet Mountain Wildlife Rehabilitation in Wetmore takes care of orphaned cubs.

The cubs have the chance to soak and play in the tub. The cubs have been orphaned in Woodland Park.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife claims that the cub fighting game is an important part of their development.

The nonprofit rehabilitates injured wild animals and raises orphans so that they can be released back into the wild when they are mature. The facility also caters for unwanted parrots, macaws and cockatoos.

With 12 orphaned cubs, the rehab has welcomed 14 fawns, three raccoons and two badgers this year.

Donated by wildlife rehabilitation services for 32 years, the facility receives no government funding and is dependent on donations. Contact Wet Mountain Wildlife Rehabilitation at (719) 784-3214 to find out how to donate.

The facility is not open to the public to prevent the human footprint for animals. Human contact is minimized
