BROOKS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

As the weather gets warmer, wild animals are becoming more active.

That leads to more animal rescues, as the animals find their way into peoples' homes. Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association officials remind you what to do if a wild animal gets in your home.
 
 
"In a situation like that, you'd obviously just want to make a phone call for help," said Chet Powell, Executive Director of the Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association. "You might want to call your local D-N-R office or contact us. And, obviously, just stay out of the area."
 
Powell added that because they are now getting into their busy season, the Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association is trying to train as many volunteers as possible.

To find out how you can become a volunteer, or to contact the Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association, visit www.georgiawildliferescue.org.
