The leaves are green, the flowers are in bloom and, once again, a new generation of wildlife is making its arrival.
This time of year, it’s almost a certainty that Pennsylvanians will encounter young wildlife, whether in their backyards or high on a mountain. And some of those animals – whether they be young deer, birds, raccoons or other wildlife – might appear to be abandoned.
Usually, they are not abandoned. In fact, their mothers might be watching over them from somewhere nearby. And the best thing people can do is to leave those animals alone.Adult animals often leave their young while they forage for food, but they don’t go far and they do return. Wildlife also often relies on a natural defensive tactic called the “hider strategy,” where young animals will remain motionless and “hide” in surrounding cover while adults draw the attention of potential predators or other intruders away from their young.
