Congrats Aspen Scherck of Mills Elementary! Your black-footed ferret joins our ambulance herd
By Kristy Bleizeffer Feb 15, 2016
Congratulations to Aspen Scherck of Mills Elementary! Her black-footed ferret entry won the public voting round, securing the ferret's place in the strangest animal herd in all of Wyoming.
For our 2016 ambulance contest, we asked Natrona County elementary students to nominate their favorite Wyoming critters to join the Wyoming Medical Center ambulance herd. Did they ever answer! We received 170 entries from almost every elementary school. Our selection committee poured over every entry and had a devil of a time picking the 10 finalists.
We will unveil the new black-footed ferret ambulance this spring at Aspen's school. The ferret joins our other ambulance animals including a grizzly bear, bald eagle, pronghorn antelope, elk, bighorn sheep, moose, mountain lion, bison and cutthroat trout.
Congratulations to all the talented finalists!
