WildCare and the Marin Municipal Water District team up to stop fawns from being kidnapped

Every spring WildCare admits a number of baby animals that have been "kidnapped" by well-meaning people who found them alone and assumed they needed help. In fact, one in five of the fawns brought to WildCare in 2013 were healthy and were promptly returned to their mothers.

WildCare and the Marin Municipal Water District have teamed up in a joint public awareness campaign to keep baby animals from being kidnapped this spring, but also to make sure babies in need actually get the care they need.

Our joint press release was sent to local media, and MMWD commissioned a wonderful poster to be distributed and hung in multiple locations telling people how to know if a fawn really needs rescue. Click for the poster.
