As young animals are born this spring, biologists remind the public that they should resist the urge to “rescue” young wildlife, as that often does more harm than good. “Young wildlife belongs in the wild, and even the most well-intentioned attempt to care for them often results in an unwanted outcome,” the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation said in a press release.
Young wildlife removed from the wild are denied important natural learning experiences that help them survive, the release said. Even if these animals are eventually returned to the wild, their chances of survival are reduced. It is also illegal to take young wildlife from the wild or keep them as pets.
