Contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitator immediately if you have determined that a wild animal is sick, injured, or truly orphaned. Never attempt to rehabilitate wildlife on your own. Wisconsin's licensed wildlife rehabilitators are specially trained to provide temporary care and treatment to wild animals for the purpose of release back into the wild. You can refer to the Keep Wildlife Wild page, bird [PDF] , mammal [PDF] or fawn [PDF] keys for guidance to help you determine if a young wild animal is truly orphaned, and choosing an appropriate course of action.

Until transport to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator can be arranged, any sick, injured and/or orphaned wildlife should be placed inside a ventilated container in a dark, warm and quiet place away from human disturbances, such as children and pets. Do not provide food or water, as this can do more harm than good if the animal is not in optimal body condition or offered the wrong diet. Recommendations for Transporting Wildlife [PDF]


Deer rehabilitation policy

Orphaned, sick or injured deer are recovered every year by the public and department staff and placed with licensed deer rehabilitators [PDF]. The CWD affected counties [PDF] and the deer rehabilitation policy [PDF] are in effect to outline the desired procedures for the intake, release and marking of deer to address disease management issues as well as compliance with state and federal laws. Specific geographic guidance will be communicated by the department directly to all licensed rehabilitators in the state annually or more frequently if necessary.
