Wildlife officials warn people to stay away from baby animals

News Briefs

With spring in full swing, wildlife officials are reminding people to keep their hands off baby animals. 

Game and Fish wardens say people often try to take young baby deer, bear cubs and other animals into their care, when it looks like they’ve been abandoned. 

However, they say likely the animal’s mother is just off looking for food. 

They say trying to reintroduce babies into the wild after they’ve been in human care can be difficult or even impossible.
