(Harrisburg) -- The state Game Commission is reminding Pennsylvanians to avoid contact with young animals in the wild, even if it appears the animal is struggling.
Spokesman Travis Lau says there’s a risk of disease in the animals, and it's best to call the commission for assistance.
He says some might think they're helping out, but it could actually make things more difficult.
"There's always the risk of imprinting on a young animal. So if a fawn for instance, were to become habituated to human activity, we might be unable to release it back into the wild."
The Game Commission's headquarters can be reached at: 717-787-4250.
