Colorado Parks and Wildlife warns: Leave newborn animals alone
DENVER -- Spring in Colorado means newborn wildlife. And Colorado Parks and Wildlife says it typically gets an increase in calls from people thinking a newborn animal has been abandoned. Usually, that's not the case and trying to help the animal could do more harm than good. Most of the time, officials says mothers will leave their newborns behind while they look for food, but they'll leave them in a place they think is safe.
