JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (AP) - A local nonprofit is searching for a brick-and-mortar home in Jackson Hole to rehabilitate injured wildlife.

The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1RbffTF ) that the Teton Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is currently looking for a location to help wildlife ranging from black bears to songbirds that are regularly injured in Teton Valley, Idaho, and Jackson Hole.

Organizer Renee Seidler says the center will help only native wildlife injured by human activity.

The group still has hurdles to overcome before beginning operations, but Seidler and confounder Lindsay Jones have been in discussions with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, which must grant permits for their work.
