6 Cops & Courts The Calvert County Times Thursday, October 5, 2017 Calvert Man’s Wildlife Calvert County Sheriff’s Rehab Shutdown Final Office Crime Report Ronald Gene Wexler By Guy Leonard Staff Writer Ronald Gene Wexler, whose wildlife rehabilitation practice in Lusby was shut- down last year by the Maryland Depart- ment of Natural Resources (DNR) be- cause he was practicing veterinary medi- cine without a license, was dealt another blow last week when an administrative law judge rejected his appeal. Wexler, 68, of Lusby, had also been found guilty of possessing numerous con- trolled dangerous substances in Calvert County District Court. He was fined $500 for practicing vet- erinary medicine without a license and a received a suspended six month jail sen- tence, according to DNR, last October for the drug possession charges. The investigation into Wexler’s op- erations at the Orphaned Wildlife Rescue Center Inc. began in 2015 when wildlife officials from the state and federal govern- ment searched his facility based on a tip, DNR officials said. They “found wild animals roaming freely and defecating in the living quar- ters, animals that should have been eutha- nized due to the extent of their injuries, animals on which Wexler had performed surgery and an osprey held in a cage much too small, which led to muscle atrophy,” DNR reported. The search also revealed drugs to in- clude oxycodone, Demerol, pentobarbital, and fentanyl for which Wexler had no pre- scription or licenses, DNR reported. “Wexler goes by the name “Doc” and referred to himself as a veterinarian on his web site, however he does not have a vet- erinary license,” according to DNR. Wexler had appealed the DNR shut- down in November but the evidence and his prior convictions led to the permanent revocation of his rehabilitation permit by Judge Tameika Lunn-Exinor, DNR stated. guyleonard@countytimes.net Deputies Receive Certificates of Appreciation Members of the 11 SSPTS Security Support Squadron from Joint Base An- drews presented Certificates of Appre- ciation on Sept 28 to several deputies of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office.
