BATON ROUGE, AL - On Friday, January 13th at noon on the levee near the LSU campus, LSU Women's Basketball Head Coach Kim Mulkey was on hand to assist members of the LSU Veterinarian School in the releasing of a bald eagle back into the wild.
The LSU Vet School is one of 33 Veterinary schools in the United States. They list that their mission is to improve and protect the lives of animals through superior education, transformational research and compassionate care.
“The Wildlife Hospital of Louisiana is the only hospital of its type and we service basically the entire state." Mark Mitchell the director of the Wildlife Hospital of Louisiana said. "We work with state and federal agents who have injured animals that they potentially bring to us, but the majority of the animals that they bring to us are from good Samaritans, Louisiana citizens,”
The school medically treats and cares for several different species and say they see approximately 20,000 case each year. They offer primary care along with specialty services. They have treatments for a variety of illnesses and injuries and they are open 24/7, 365 days a year.
