Grand Rapids, Minn. Minnesota DNR officials ask that you think twice before “rescuing” fawns or other baby animals this spring.

If you find an animal curled up in the woods or a field all by
itself, it likely hasn’t been abandoned. Furthermore, removing deer
or other native wildlife from the wild and raising and keeping them
in captivity is against the law. The unnatural conditions of life
in captivity can lead to malnutrition, injury and stress.

For more information, contact Jean Goad, public affairs officer
at 218-327-4262, or your local DNR wildlife office.
