Leave young wildlife alone according to BLM
This is the time of year when wild animals give birth, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds the public not to approach, touch or handle young animals, according to a news release.

During spring and early summer, people often see young animals that appear to be alone in the forest, in backyards, on or near trails or along the sides of roads.

Deer provide a good example of how wildlife adapt behaviors to help them survive. Young fawns have no scent and are born with speckled coats that provide a natural camouflage. These two factors help them avoid being found by predators. When a mother doe senses a predator might be close2, it moves away. Many other animals use similar survival techniques.

Elk and moose calves also are left alone by their mothers. If you see one, move away quickly. Do not move closer or attempt to get the animal to move.

Young birds often fall out of their nests or are pushed out of nests by parents to encourage them to fly.
