Tips for helping orphaned wildlife
It’s that time again when baby wild animals and people come into contact with one another. First owlets and squirrels, then raccoons, opossums, waterfowl and songbirds – the transition from winter to summer brings the busiest season for wildlife and for Oaken Acres Wildlife Center in rural Sycamore.
With the closing of the wildlife nursery at TAILS Humane Society, Oaken Acres will be the only wildlife center in DeKalb County. Here are a few tips to make life easier for everyone – wild babies and their moms, rescuers and the staff at Oaken Acres.
• Unless an animal is obviously injured or orphaned, leave it alone until you get advice from a wildlife professional. There is a page on the Oaken Acres website – www.oakenacres.org – that details what to do when you find a wild animal that may be in need of help.
