SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish would like to remind the public to leave young wildlife alone.
Removing young animals such as deer, antelope fawns, elk calves, bear cubs, or any other wild animals can cost them their lives.
Most of these animals that are discovered are hiding as they wait for their parents to return.
If you remove the animal, you can risk the chance of catching fleas, ticks, or any diseases the animal may be carrying.
The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish officials say if you have a doubt about the well-being of the animal and think it may be in danger, please contact them.
