While at first glance the animals may appear to be lost or abandoned, they usually do not need to be rescued. The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is asking people not to rescue animals such as deer fawns, elk calves, bear cubs, baby birds, or others that may appear to be lost, injured or abandoned.  Most often, the wild mothers hide their babies while they forage or drink. Usually, mothers are closer than you think.
