Sometimes mother nature isn’t kind. Animals are different than humans – they leave baby animals behind for reasons we can’t always see – they may be ill or diseased. Nobody wants to think about what happens to those babies, but they usually end up playing a role in another animal’s circle of life. Sad, but factual.
So far this year, we’ve received phone calls regarding these animals:
Ducklings – 8 calls
Squirrels – 3 calls
BIrds – 2 calls
Rabbits – 8 calls
Raccoons – 2 calls
Groundhog – 1 call
We don’t want to give you the bad news, but baby animals picked up by humans don’t end up well. Tell your kids, your neighbor kids and your friends – If you care, leave them there.
