Mika, raccoon. 

(pronounced mike-a, is Native American for "wise or knowing raccoon”)   
He arrived in January 2015. Mika was found in the fall as a juvenile lingering around a warehouse trying to find food from people.  He was taken to Mercer County Wildlife Center in November 2014. After an initial evaluation by rehabilitation staff it was determined that he was habituated and could not be released into the wild.  We assume that someone raised him and then he either escaped or was mistakenly released. Mika is very friendly towards people and a very curious and playful raccoon. 

SassafrasSassafras, white-tailed deer. 

In 2003, she was found walking along a road in a nearby township wearing a collar and leash. The first white-tailed deer to become a permanent resident of the Refuge was named "Sassafras” by our founder, Betty Woodford. This gentle deer is her namesake.

Filbert, eastern gray squirrel. 

Arrived in March 2015. He was transferred from Volunteers for Wildlife, a wildlife rehabilitation facility in New York. Filbert was injured in the fall of 2014 as a juvenile and was treated for head trauma.  After months of treatment, the head trauma did not resolve, so he could not be released back into the wild. Filbert is a curious and playful squirrel. If you see him digging in the ground, he is likely hiding some of his favorite foods, especially nuts.
