    Keep your distance from young or injured wildlife

    Each spring, FWP receives several calls from people who have picked up deer fawns or other wildlife.

    FWP advises against this practice for several reasons. The agency does not accept, hold or rehabilitate deer and elk because the animals rarely survive the stress of captivity, and because of concerns with the spread of disease. So FWP’s likely response would be to tell people to leave the animals alone or return them to where they were found.

The program involved asking Montana students to share their ideas about managing this magnificent but complex and, at times, controversial predator. The program encouraged youth to learn about the public comment process, providing input and taking part in managing our state’s fish and wildlife.
