Prague animal rescue workers saved 400 animals in 2010

Prague animal rescue workers have saved 400 animals this year, a spokesman for the Czech Union for Nature Conversation told the Czech News Agency on Saturday. Most often, workers rescued injured animals or abandoned offspring, among them hedgehogs, pigeons, rabbits and swifts. Some of the more unusual animals that they encountered this year were mouflons, wild boar and badgers. Since July, the organization has to depend solely on donations to operate because of budget cuts and the loss of some sponsors due to the economic downturn.
