  • DNREC’s Division of Fish and Wildlife would like to remind wildlife watchers not to rescue young wild animals.
    Precautions to take with both juvenile and adult wild animals:
    - If you see a young animal alone, watch from a distance to see if its mother returns, but be aware that this could take several hours.
    - Some wild animals can be unpredictable and sometimes dangerous, especially if they are in pain. They also can carry parasites or illnesses that can affect you or your pets, such as rabies. If you must handle any wild animal, wear gloves and use extreme care.
    - Remember that it is illegal to raise or keep any wild animal in Delaware.
