Injured Wild Animals. For those who find injured wild game animals, please contact the Inland Northwest Wildlife Council at (509) 487-8552.
Do not disturb wild baby animals,
especially fawns. Although they may appear abandoned or orphaned in
the wild, their mothers (who have often left to find food and water) are
generally nearby. Removing these babies can lead to their death. An
exception would be freeing a fawn from a tangled fence. (State wildlife officials and licensed rehabilitation at Washington Fish and Wildlife Department, http://wdfw.wa.gov/)
Every year hunters and fisherman in
our country donate millions and millions of pounds of wild game meat.
Local sportsmen can connect their skills with the need of feeding the
homeless and hungry. Sportsmen can donate a portion or
all of their high-protein, low-fat harvest to the needy. Some hunters
pay for the meat processing fee, others do not. Contact Inland NW
Wildlife Council at (509) 487-8552.
Road kill. Washington
State Law says that anyone can pick up roadkill for their own
consumption, but they must take the entire animal, not just parts of
it. (Washington Dept. of Fish & Wildlife)
