Woman leaves estate to Vt. Fish and Wildlife

Posted: Updated:
EAST MONTPELIER, Vt. -

A lover of wildlife has left her estate to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.

Mamie Thurston of East Montpelier died last year at the age of 87.

She bequeathed her home, property and financial assets to the state's nongame wildlife fund.

The state says the gift is valued at more than $500,000 and will help fill the department's budget shortfall.
