Good advice! Please share with others who spend time in the outdoors.

See a young animal by itself? Usually the parent is nearby, just out of sight.

The best thing to do with a young animal, or any wildlife, is to leave it alone exactly as you found it.

In the case of injured or truly orphaned wildlife, contact your local licensed wildlife rehabilitator. The Law Enforcement Division has a list at http://gadnrle.org/node/32 under the heading "Wildlife Rehabilitaton."
