LA CROSSE TALK PM: Animal rescue stories with Coulee Region Wildlife Rehabilitator Kathy KasaKaitas



Coulee Region Wildlife Rehabilitator Kathy KasaKaitas in the WIZM studio on Dec. 15, 2022, for La Crosse Talk PM.

Coulee Region Wildlife Rehabilitator Kathy KasaKaitas dropped into to the WIZM studio on Thursday for La Crosse Talk PM to tell some animal rescue stories.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

KasaKaitas is working with 1,000-1,200 rescues a year and is pretty much self-funded through donations and grants. She’s got a wishlist right now on the rehab Facebook page and a pretty simple wishlist at Amazon here.

She told us two big stories over the past year they’ve helped with, including a bald eagle that was hit by a train and traveled 80 miles to La Crosse, as well as some baby barn owls nesting in Onalaska — the first nest found in Wisconsin in 21 years — that eventually had to be rescued.

We also discussed the city of La Crosse ending its contract with Coulee Region Humane Society to take animal calls and how that affects them going forward.
