No time, photo of myself will be posted soon and kiriban 833 333 is extremely close.
Today no photos, I need to share important thing!
People, it is spring and wild animals have babies.
PLEASE! If you find some baby animals in the wild, do NOT come close to them, and ABSOLUTELY do NOT touch them!
Baby animals often seem to be abandoned, but in fact, they do what they are supposed to do: they hide in the grass without moving, waiting for their mother, who is in fact close to them. Baby deers, baby rabbits and another animals do NOT stay with their moms all the time! Their moms feed themselves and then they come to their babies to feed them with milk.
IF YOU TOUCH THOSE BABIES, mothers are scared by human scent, leaving the babies to die!
Every year, workers of all stations for handicated animals are sad and frustrated, because people bring baby animals to them, saying ,,I found this baby deer in grass, it was so alone." If those people saw those babies and went away without touching them, mothers would come back to their babies. But instead, they touched the babies so those animals are lost for their mothers and nature :///
Every year, I see photos of kids and young people on DA, where those persons touch and even hold baby deers, saying ,,omg, I found this cutie on my yard, it was so cuteeeeeeh!!!"
People, such activity is in fact a DEAD hug for those cuteeeeeeh animals.
If you find a baby wild animal, GET AWAY IMMEDIATELY.
Please, do NOT touch that baby.
Mother is probably very close - if you touch her baby, she will be scared, very probably leaving it.
You surely do not want to make the mother lose her calf!
If you are worried, try to get to some distant
place (mother should not know about your presence - remember that she smells your scent!!!!) with view and wait to see if the mother really comes back. It might take hours.You are ONLY supposed to take a baby to some station for handicaped animal, if the baby is obviously injured or ill. If you find a dead deer as a road kill with an abandoned foal staying near, it is the perfect situation to find the specialist.
If you find your cat attacking some baby rabbits or so, it is also good to call the specialist.
Remember - the fact, that the baby does not run away from you, is NOT a sign of an illness - it is an instinct. The baby is supposed to stay still without moving!A bit different rule comes for baby birds:
If you find alive baby bird without feathers under the nest, you CAN touch it, bringing it back to the nest.
The baby bird could fall down by accident, so by moving it back, you can save its life.
Adult birds are not that sensitive about human scent
If you find a baby bird WITH feathers, who has troubles with flying, do not get nervous.
Parents are usually close, still feeding the baby who is just learning to fly after leaving the nest.
You can help by moving the baby from the road to the grass.
And if you are still worried, keep distance and wait to see, if parents really come to this baby bird.
Please, keep those rules.
For me as an animal lover, it is heart-breaking to see all those photo of happy people holding wild baby deers, because I know which troubles it brings
