Observation Reports


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!
