Fish and Game: Best to leave young wildlife alone
The Associated Press
CONCORD — N.H.'s Fish and Game Department says it's been taking numerous reports from people who have picked up young animals, often mistakenly thinking they are orphans.
Biologists say in most cases, the mother is not far off, so it's best to leave them alone.
If in doubt, people can report the location of the animal to the department. Only qualified people with special rehabilitator permits may take in and care for injured or orphaned wildlife. Improper care of injured or orphaned wildlife often leads to their sickness or death.
