It is always best to leave wildlife where it was found and trust that your intervention is not required. Human interference and involvement often causes more harm than good and should be avoided. In most cases, rescue is not required.
In Alabama, Wildlife Rehabilitators are specifically permitted by the Alabama Department of Conservation, Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries to care for native wildlife with the goal of eventual release. Wildlife Rehabilitators are permitted to administer an appropriate and humane course of action for wildlife in need.
