Missouri Department of Conservation Says With The Arrival Of Spring, Leave Wildlife Babies Wild

May 4, 2018

Working our way into spring, we may see more wildlife in unexpected places: bird nests on the porch, a few bunnies in our flower beds. As cute as they may be, the Missouri Department of Conservation advises us to leave the babies be. Joe Jerek, News Services Coordinator for the MDC, says the absence of animal parents could make their young seem abandoned, when they're actually not.
