Hi all,

This helpful posting from Bill Gerth on the Midvalley Nature list was
supposed to go to this list too, but I accidentally deleted it along
with a bunch of spam that accumulated while I was away on

Hi Joel and everyone,

I work over in the OSU Fisheries and Wildlife Department. I was talking
with my co-workers and found out that we could use any roadkilled
mammals or birds that are in reasonable shape. They would be used for
classes here at OSU. 

For mammals you'd like to donate, please contact Jessica Castillo
(jessica.castillo at oregonstate.edu). 

For birds, please contact Bruce Dugger (bruce.dugger at oregonstate.edu). 

Thanks for thinking of that Joel!

Subject: [MidValleyNature:2142] Mink casualty -- any use for specimen?

Hi all,

I got a note this morning from someone who accidentally ran over a mink
this morning (a female, apparently lactating so this person feels doubly
bad about it).

Does anyone know of a research/educational institution or such with the
proper permits that would be able to get some use out of a specimen?
