CLEVELAND — Stark Parks wants your help to feed a young cormorant, commonly found along seacoasts and inland waters, who just arrived at the wildlife conversation center this week. The center is asking anyone for extra fish, either fresh, live, or freshly frozen.

All donated fish should be under 10 inches and include the head. Fish can be dropped off at the Wildlife Conservation Center, 800 Genoa Avenue NW, in Massillon inside the Sippo Lake Park-West between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The center is closed on Wednesday and Sunday.

The center said a large black trough with water will be located at the front entrance by the picnic table. A staff member will be there to check in the fish. If the fish is frozen, you’re asked to ring the doorbell.
