Urban Wildlife Control is a nuisance animal removal company and we do not rehabilitate baby wild animals. In rare instances, we may be hired to pick up an animal and turn it over to a properly licensed animal rehabber.
At Urban Wildlife Control, we are the ones to call if you need to remove nuisance wildlife from your home. Each spring, however, we begin to get calls about "abandoned" baby animals that need help. In many cases, these animals are exactly where they should be, and have been left by their mother temporarily while she gathers food. Read on and learn when to intervene with baby wildlife and when to leave them alone.
Things to Consider:
- The best place for any baby animal is in the care of its mother.
- Georgia law prohibits taking and/or owning wild animals without proper permits.
- Many animals cannot survive without parental care. Baby rabbits are especially known for this.
- Handling wild animals can run the risk of passing diseases, both from them to you and from you to them.
- Handling wild animals runs the risk of being clawed or scratched. Proper care and protection should be used.
