MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says if you spot an animal which looks like it needs help, you should call the agency and leave the wild animal alone.
DNR biologists say spring is the time when many animals give birth. It’s possible you will see a baby animal which looks alone and vulnerable, but that may not be the case.
The mother is likely to be not far off and watching over them.
Wisconsin state statutes prohibit the possession of wild animals without a license or permit. You can hold one for 24 hours, but that’s only the time you’re given to take it to a certified wildlife rehabilitator.
