INJURED
WILDLIFE

What do do if you find injured wildlife...

Is it really injured?

LEAVE IT ALONE:

Baby deer alone, with no parents in a field, sat like a cat in "loaf" position?

This is totally normal. DO NOT touch or move them, just walk away.

LEAVE IT ALONE:

Baby hare alone in a field, no parents present, sat like a cat in "loaf" position.

This is totally normal. DO NOT touch or move them, just walk away.

LEAVE IT ALONE:

Baby bird, with most of it's feathers waiting for mum in the garden.

This is totally normal. DO NOT touch or move them, just walk away.

Yes, it's injured and needs help.

Any wildlife displaying visible injuries,  bleeding, suspected broken or dragging limbs or wings, covered in flies, maggots or dozens of ticks, injuries caused by cat or dog , road injuries, vomiting, drooling, fitting, shaking, weaving around like it is drunk, laid out on it's side or back NEEDS HELP.
