Injured/Orphaned Wildlife

Animals will often be more aggressive if they are injured or diseased. Be extremely cautious when approaching any

injured animal or animal which appears to be sick or is acting in an abnormal manner.

Relocate children and pets indoors. Bats, foxes, raccoons and skunks cannot be rehabilitated due to the possibility of rabies and should not be handled.

Locate a Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator (See below) in your area if you find an injured animal. Licensed wildlife rehabilitators provide care for an animal to a point in which it can be released back into its natural environment.
