    Thank you Gwendolyn Craig for writing a full accurate “current” and up to date story on what has recently happened at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge .

    I have been to the refuge numerous times and I give the Halls credit for taking care of the wounded animals solely on donations, from what I could see the animals are well taken care of and loved.

    I am sorry Mrs. Hall lost her beloved birds because she failed to do the proper paperwork, I am going to also miss seeing them , especially the snowy owls , I only wish she had maybe reached out for a volunteer to help her with what I would assume is mounds of paperwork , It also seems from reading this article that some birds that were rehabilitated she failed to release back into the wild , I know the DEC etc have guidelines but it seems to me she had them a long time they were older birds and I guess got to attached to them and was afraid of releasing them back into the wild .

    I love seeing the wolves and listening to Mr. Hall tell the stories and watching everyone there interact with the wolves .

    I encourage everyone to visit this refuge as I will and give when possible.

    Thank you again and look forward to reading many of your articles .
