I found a baby bird/rabbit/deer/other wildlife and do not see its mother. What do I do?

Do not touch the animal. Due to human scent on the babies, mothers may abandon their young. Wildlife mothers cannot be with their young constantly, however, that does not mean they are not taken care of. Animals such as rabbits will spend only a few hours a day with their young. With you standing nearby the mother will not return.

The best thing to do? Leave them exactly how you found them. If you picked them up then put them back. Most wildlife young do not survive in captivity so do not try to attempt to raise them yourself. If you are not sure what to do call your local animal control or wildlife rescue.
