28 ducks released back into the wild at Wehr Nature Center after rehabilitation

Twenty-eight Mallard ducks rehabilitated at the Wisconsin Humane Society's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center were released back into the wild Tuesday, Aug. 4. 

According to a press release, the unrelated ducks were all admitted as orphans for a multitude of reasons, ranging from one mother being struck by a vehicle, to others rescued after falling down into a sewer.

These ducks, fully recovered, are old enough to be returned to the wild, officials said.

The center has remained open for intake throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
