The young armadillo pictured above was rescued by George and Karen Mattila (click on the photo for a closer view).  Karen is holding the little girl and George took the picture.  This female armadillo was found crossing the golf course by the people who live at 262 Plantation.  She was being pursued by a red shoulder hawk.  Carol, at the center, said that she is healthy but a little small to be on her own.  Will be released out by her.

Thank you George and Karen for rescuing this little cutie!
