Find a Wild Animal that Needs Help in Minnesota? What To Do.


In response to an abandoned baby fawn living on a small parcel of land between a major highway and Target parking lot in Minnesota, this Learn helps Minnesotans understand what they can do if they find a wild animal that may be injured, abandoned, or in danger.

    If you find an animal in trouble do what feels right and use caution, safety and READ/ASK safety instructions that animal organizations recommend to concerned, licensed citizens who want to handle a wild animal. If you find an abandoned or injured fawn/doe/deer, remember that all of us animals carry diseases and there are physical signs to recognize before handling any animal. It is a fine to remove a wild animal from any location without an applicable license/permit.
