Use Caution When Dealing with Sick or Injured Wildlife

The MNR is warning residents about tending to sick or wounded animals.

If you do encounter a sick or wounded animal the Ministry of Natural Resources says it could require specialized care to recover and return to the wild.

The MNR says you may do more harm than good by trying to help.

Determining if wildlife has been abandoned differs greatly among animals, for example deer spend much of their day away from their offspring.

The MNR also warns that your presence alone may interfere as wildlife may not return to their offspring if there is a human presence.

You can contact the MNR if you do encounter what you believe to be injured, sick or abandoned wildlife.

The MNR website, www.ontario.ca/mnroffices is a great resource to residents.
