Did you find injured/orphaned wildlife?
Please do not attempt to care for the animal yourself. Do not give food or water, because it could cause further injury. Please do keep the animal in a dark, quiet box or crate and bring to the center or another wildlife drop-off location. The Bahde Wildlife Center is open daily, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Before capturing a wild animal, please review this information to ensure intervention is needed.
