When you think about it, Yosemite is one big birthing room. As such, rangers are cautioning summer visitors to look but not touch, and to give any young wildlife – baby birds, fawns, etc. – plenty of space.
“They may appear to be in distress, but are not sick, injured, or abandoned,” the park notes of young wildlife. “If moved from their location, the parents cannot care for their offspring and many of the young animals do not survive.”
