I Found a Wild Animal, Now What?

Unless an animal is in immediate distress, the best thing you can do to help it, is to leave it alone. When a baby animal is by itself, the mother has likely left it there to go off in search of food. By you interacting with the animal, will increase the likelihood of a predator finding it due to the scent you will leave behind.

Please always contact the Wildlife Hotline before removing any young animal from a situation 306-242-7177
