Wildlife Tracking

After a while, I remembered there were badgers in those woods as well as foxes and some wild dogs. It was time to go back home. Wildlife; it is something to be treated with respect, and, in my case, absence. On April 20, 2010 an explosion 41 miles off the shore of Louisiana on the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling platform left 11 employees dead. British Petroleum (BP) operates the license on the Transocean owned drilling rig, according to an April 21 press release issued by Deepwater Horizon Response. By May 6, BP confirmed oil from the leaking drilling site reached a group of islands in Breton National Wildlife Refuge just northeast of the Mississippi Delta. Wildlife veterinarians washed oil from birds affected by the spill, according to a May 19 report from the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). Louisiana state wildlife veterinarian Dr. James M. LaCour says the spill hasn't had a great impact on wildlife yet. But, with spawning and nesting season underway, wildlife are less likely to move away from danger so they can care for their young.
