Concord NH  Jessica Gray of Manchester, N.H., a  16-year-old Manchester West High School Student, took top honors among young  New Hampshire artists in the 2012 Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and  Design Contest.  Gray's mixed media  painting of mallards, entitled "Winter by the Cattails," was chosen from among  90 entries as New Hampshire's State Best of Show in the Federal Junior Duck  Stamp Contest.

Gray will be awarded a $500 scholarship prize made  possible by a grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Leave Young Animals Alone -- Keep Wildlife Wild - 2012

CONCORD, N.H. - With the early spring, people are getting  outside and some are observing young animals. If you encounter wildlife, even  young animals that appear to need help, please remember that the kindest -- and  safest -- thing to do is to leave them alone and let nature take its course,  say officials from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.

Reports have already begun coming in to Fish and Game and  local wildlife rehabilitators from people who have picked up young animals,  often mistakenly thinking they are orphans.

"Picking up fawns, baby raccoons  or young animals is an error in judgment," says Fish and Game Lt. Robert  Bryant. "People think they're doing a good deed, but they are often  removing the animal from the care of its parents and exposing themselves to the  risk of disease. What's more, these actions may result in the animal having to  be euthanized for rabies testing."

Young wild animals (including mammals, birds, reptiles  and amphibians) typically have their best chance of surviving when they are in  their own natural environment, says Fish and Game Wildlife Biologist Kent  Gustafson. What should you do if you find a young animal?  "Give wildlife  plenty of space and leave them alone and in the wild, where they belong,"  he said.

Gustafson explains that seeing a deer fawn alone, for example,  does NOT mean that it is orphaned or that it needs your help; it is normal for  a doe to leave her fawn alone while she goes off to feed.  In many cases, the doe will not return until  nightfall. "Fawns are not defenseless creatures. Their cryptic coloration,  tendency to stay perfectly still and lack of scent are all adaptations that  help them survive," Gustafson said. Does are easy to detect because of  their size and scent, so they generally keep a distance from their fawns,  except during brief nursing bouts, so that predators don't find them. If  sympathetic people repeatedly visit a fawn, it can prolong the separation from  the doe and delay important feeding.

"This hands-off policy also applies to bear cubs and  moose calves," Gustafson continued. "It's also worth noting that sows and  cows (female bears and moose) can and do actively protect their young.  In any case, if you're lucky enough to see a  deer fawn, bear cub, moose calf or other wild animal, count your blessings and  leave the area."

Sadly, improper care of injured or orphaned wildlife  often leads to their sickness or death. Remember -- only qualified people with  special rehabilitator permits, issued through N.H. Fish and Game, may take in  and care for injured or orphaned wildlife. Unless you have rehabilitator  credentials, it is illegal to have in your possession or take New Hampshire  wildlife from the wild and keep it in captivity. For a list of licensed  wildlife rehabilitators, go to
