Making a lucrative living certainly isn't a motivating factor for wildlife caregivers. It's a profession that appeals to those with a strong will, a big heart, and a love of wild animals. In rural western Kentucky, the dedicated individuals featured in "Wild Bandits" rescue, rehabilitate and release injured, sick, and orphaned wild animals. State-licensed volunteers like Kristin Allen, who works for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, answer emergency calls day and night, and coordinate with other rehabbers to provide the best care for each species. Despite the constant sacrifice of time, money and sleep, these caregivers make sure the animals come first -- with the ultimate goal of one day returning them back to the wild.
