PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, WI (WTAQ) - The state has revoked the license of a child residential care center at Prairie du Chien, after a youngster was severely injured there in June. 

The Wisconsin State Journal said the Wyalusing Academy was told in a letter last Friday it would lose its license for failing to, "ensure the health, safety, and welfare of children in its care." 

A youngster was hurt severely on June 24th at the center -- and the center did not seek outside medical help for over 24 hours afterward. The center is still running while it appeals its revocation.

Director Mary Beth Specht said officials there are looking forward to meeting with the state, and explore ways it can keep operating. 

Wyalusing Academy is a residential treatment facility for children and teens who function significantly below their grade levels. It normally has about 70 residents from Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, and elsewhere.
