Remember, if you spot an animal in distress, whether it’s a full grown adult or a baby, do not assist. What we think of as help could easily be detrimental to the animal’s health and safety. Instead, if you truly believe the animal is in danger, contact your local wildlife offices and note the location of the animal.
