These poor babies :(

This is just so sad to see all those babies piled up in tubs. They are so adorable too!

Please donate something to her if you can.

It is no exaggeration to say that the recent news and social media report of the seizure of 652 red-eared sliders went viral. The shipment was seized by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and turned over to our own NYTTS Wildlife Rehabilitator Lorri Cramer. Lorri addresses the issue in this video by Anita Salzberg.

Read about this a few days ago. I'm surprised they were actually sized, I usually have to make several calls to 311 to get a vendor checked out. I hope they find the right home and I hope we get better laws and enforcement.
