Wondering what to do when you find an injured or orphaned critter in your yard? Phil Jenni, executive director of the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota, will join The Daily Circuit Friday to take your questions about handling injured animals.

"At this time of year our wards are packed with injured and orphaned animals and the halls are filled with interns," Jenni wrote on the WRC blog. "WRC is a hopping place.  From my office, which happens to be located below our baby raccoon ward, the sound of chattering and squealing raccoons never stops. In the background are the noises from our other animal wards: the strident caw of crows, the staccato of a pileated woodpecker drumming and the melodic symphony of dozens of songbirds."

Jenni will also update us about what's going on at the center.
