SANIBEL, FL - The employees and volunteers at C.R.O.W., the clinic for the rehabilitation of wildlife, work day and night to help rehabilitate and return injured animals to the wild. But last week, the facility was shut down by State officials because it was determined that facility's workman's comp insurance, lapsed. C.R.O.W.'s board of directors President, John Schuman says at this point no one knows how the insurance issue was overlooked for so long. During the State imposed shutdown, no paid employees could work at the facility. Volunteers stepped in to assist "patients". Schuman says the facility lost approximately 15 thousand dollars in revenue from the visitor's center during the shutdown.
