State Officials Warn Certain “Abandoned” Animals Don’t Need Rescuing

When you find a young animal alone in the woods, don’t assume that you need to rescue it.

More often than not, The animal isn’t “abandoned.” Instead, the animal’s mother is likely off searching for food.

Apparently, this is usually the case for rabbits, birds, and deer. Don’t jump to conclusions! Not everything needs saving.

“It’s not uncommon for a doe deer or rabbit to leave her young alone nearly all day while she eats and recuperates from the stress of nursing. Mother and father birds also take many trips scouring the nearby area for food they will bring back to the hatchlings.”
