What Do You Do When You Find A "Baby" Wild Animal?

The ODNR Division of Wildlife and wildlife rehabilitators around the state have received calls from people who have found, what they believe to be, an “orphaned” wildlife animal. In most cases these animals are not orphans. Most people don’t realize that wild animals often leave their young unattended to draw predators away from the young animals, and only return to feed them. By removing these young from the wild, people are actually taking them away from the parents.

You can learn more about it by watching this video:
