Leave the young animals alone - Jun. 04, 2018

A message from MDIFW
urging people, "If You Care, Leave Them There." This time of year, wild
animals frequent residential areas
and often come in contact with people. In most cases, their mothers are
nearby feeding. Maine game wardens are urging the public to leave the
young animals alone and allow their mothers to return. In many cases,
removal of these animals reduces their chances
for survival or reintroduction into the wild.
