At this time last year, the price of a frozen, euthanized mouse was 45 cents.
But now, that price has nearly doubled, said Diane Johnson, executive director of Operation WildLife Inc. And the 25-year-old animal rehabilitation clinic known as OWL is â€œstrugglingâ€ as a result.
â€œRight now, weâ€™re OK,â€ Johnson said of the financial situation at the Linwood-based clinic, which also has a satellite receiving center in Shawnee. â€œI donâ€™t know if two or three months down the line weâ€™re going to be OK.â€
Mice and rats, which are even more expensive, are in high demand as a main food source at a clinic that houses and rehabilitates 4,000 to 5,000 injured, orphaned and displaced wild animals every year. OWL has its own breeding colony of mice and rats, but â€œweâ€™re limited on space,â€ Johnson said, so the clinic largely depends on an Indiana-based supplier to provide the more than 450 mice and 100 rats animals at the clinic consume on a weekly basis.
