Please don’t kidnap wildlife, and don’t interfere with wild animals unless it’s an obvious emergency! All protected species must go to a licensed rehabber if found injured or abandoned. You have 48 hours to turn the animal over to a rahabber, but for the animal’s health and safety, it should be done within the first 12 hours of finding it. If you don’t comply, you can be cited and fined, and that’s just the first offense.
It is illegal to rehab a bird or wild animal in your home without the proper permits if it is a protected species!
