Stinger arrived at MARC on July 24 2011 from Newburyport, MA. He was lethargic, thin, and had an injury caused by entanglement in fishing line that needed medical attention. After a few months at the rehabilitation center Stinger has gained several pounds and the wound on his neck has healed.
Good Luck Stinger!
