If you find an injured or orphaned wild animal PLEASE DO NOT touch or pick it up unless it is in immediate danger. Please phone your local rescue centre first. If you need to move the animal place it in a quiet & dark. Then call for help. Wild creatures are not calmed by contact with humans. Talking to them and stroking them only increases their stress.
