Heat shield loose

I was changing my differential fluid and notified that the large heat shield above the muffler was totally detached and basically laying on top of the muffler.

1) Do I really need the heat shield or can I just pull it out and trash it?
2) Has anyone reattached the shield? If so how?

I just used big washers as the old fasteners rotted through worked like a charm
