Do not disturb young wildlife
TWRA offices receive an increase in calls regarding abandoned wildlife each spring. Calls received are most often about typical wildlife behavior and not truly abandoned young. Following are a few tips to keep wildlife wild. Wild animals know what they’re doing when it comes to raising offspring, says Kirk Miles, TWRA Wildlife Program Manager. “Many people believe young wildlife to be abandoned, when they’ve simply been concealed by their mothers. If an animal isn’t obviously sick or injured, please leave it alone. This concealment strategy in the animal kingdom works. The mother will tend to her offspring when the area is safe.” Typical calls received by the agency include birds out of nests, young rabbits exposed in their nest, squirrels fallen from a nest and white-tail fawns found abandoned. In most cases, humans should just leave the animal. The presence of humans can deter wildlife from tending to their young.
