Try to gather the following information and call the ASLC Rescue and Rehabilitation Stranding Hotline as soon as possible:
Note physical characteristics.
Does the animal appear extremely skinny or weak?
Are there any obvious signs of injury?
Is the animal alone or are there other wild animals in the area?
How long have you observed this animal?
If possible, take digital photos of the animal and the area.
Gather as much information as possible before you call. If available, have someone continue to observe the animal and keep others away. ASLC Rescue and Rehabilitation Staff will guide you as to what to do next.
