From the state Fish and Game Department:
If you encounter wildlife, even young animals that appear to need help, the kindest - and safest - thing to do is to leave them alone and let nature take its course, officials from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said today.
This time of year, many people call Fish and Game reporting that they have picked up young animals, thinking they are orphans. "Picking up fawns, baby raccoons or young animals is an error in judgment," says Fish and Game Lt. Bruce Bonenfant. "People think they're doing a good deed, but they are removing the animal from the care of its parents and exposing themselves to the risk of disease. What's more, these actions may result in the animal having to be euthanized for rabies testing."
