What do I do if I found a wild animal?

The number one answer to this question is, “Leave it alone!” Many wild animals, especially rabbits and deer, leave their young for extended periods of time, so we should not interfere with them. Daylight sightings of raccoons and opossums are not unusual and likely don’t require a call to your local Animal Shelter. In the majority of cases, these critters are just going about their daily lives. Check out the links below for more information. 

 If you truly believe a wild animal is in need of assistance call the Missouri Department of Conservation (see link below) or the Lakeside Nature Center at 816-513-8960 for advice or visit their webpage at lakesidenaturecenter.org.
