The Wild Truth: Animals Rarely Abandon their Young

Record #:
The popular saying that animals will abandon their young if they scent human contact, is indeed, a myth. Replacing a baby bird to a nest will not cause the parents to abandon it, but handling or moving young animals should not be a decision taken lightly; in most instances the parents leave for long period of time to gather food for themselves and their young before returning.
