Fellow Mortals is currently one of the largest wildlife hospitals in the state and nation. It is located in the Town of Geneva, Wisconsin, in a rural area north of Lake Como.
In February 2016, the founders of Fellow Mortals were told by workers of American Transmission Company (ATC) that they would be clear-cutting the vegetation contained in an easement for overhead power lines. Fellow Mortals objected to the clear-cutting because the vegetation in question provides noise and visual buffer between the adjacent highway and the wildlife hospital. The screening provided by the vegetation is a necessary component to Fellow Mortals operation of the hospital.
After unsuccessfully attempting to negotiate a solution with ATC, Fellow Mortals has had to resort to the Walworth County Circuit Court to protect the operation of its wildlife hospital.
The lawyers at Rizzo & Diersen, S.C., are with Fellow Mortals in fighting this battle. The matter is scheduled to be heard in Court on July 29, 2016.
