It's more common to see baby wild animals outside especially during spring. This new generation of wildlife might seem like they need help, but unless the animal is truly orphaned or injured, they should be left undisturbed. Babies of some species are left alone all day and rely on camouflage for protection, while others are supervised by their parents.
Signs that a wild animal needs to be rescued:
The animal is brought to you by a cat or dog.
There’s evidence of bleeding.
The animal has an apparent or obvious broken limb.
The animal is shivering.
There’s a dead parent nearby.
The animal is crying and wandering all day long.
