What to do if you or your children come across a wild animal baby:
1) Do not touch. Leave the animal alone for the first 24 hours. In most cases the animal is there for a reason.
2) If a bird fell out of its nest, try to put it back. It is a myth that the mother won't return if a human touches it.
3) If the animal is obviously injured than call the experts like the Adirondack Wilderness Refuge at 518-946-2428
