DFG says to leave young wildlife alone Spring is in the air and. California's flora and fauna are awakening from their winter slumber. Deer, bears, birds and other wildlife are busy caring for their newborn offspring. During this season of rebirth and renewal, the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) recommends that people leave young wildlife alone if they see them in the outdoors. The improper handling of young wildlife is a problem in California and across the nation, most commonly in the spring. People frequently en- counter young wild animals and assume they need assistance or have been orphaned. However, in most cases neither assumption is true and the animals should be left alone. In 2010, approx- imately 439 fawns were turned into California reha- bilitation facilities by well- meaning members of the public. Many of these fawns were healthy and should not have been disturbed. "Never take a healthy fawn from the wild," said Nicole Carion, DFG's statewide coordinator for wildlife rehabilitation and restricted species. "Healthy fawns will be lying or standing quietly by them- selves in one location for hours while their mother is away feeding. If you care, leave them there." Once a fawn is removed from its mother, it can lose its ability to survive in the wild. The same danger t, plies to most animals, including bears, coyotes, raccoons and most birds. Disease is another reason that wild animals should not be handled. Wild ani- mals can transmit diseases that can be contracted by humans, including rabies and tularemia, and also carry ticks, flehs and lice. The responsibility for intervention should be left to DFG personnel or per- mitted wildlife rehabilita- tors. It is illegal to keep orphaned or injured ani- mals for more than 48 hours in California. People can call a rehabilitator, who will determine whether there is a need for a rescue. Rehabilitators are trained to provide care for wild animals so they retain their natural fear of humans and do not become habituated or imprinted.
