MILWAUKEE -- Spring and summer is baby wild animal season. If you see one, DNR Wildlife Biologist Dianne Robinson urges you to enjoy from a distance but don't touch.

Wisconsin Humane Society's Scott Diehl, Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Director at the Wisconsin Humane Society shares it is normal behavior for adult wild animals to leave their babies alone for a time and does not mean the animal is orphaned.

It is also illegal to keep wild animals and birds captive in Wisconsin.

If you see an animal you think needs help, please call the DNR at (888) 936-7463.
