They're called wild animals for a reason, and no matter how cute and adorable they look, they're wild, and for their own good - and yours - it's best if we keep them that way.

CPW

When people intentionally place or distribute food that does not naturally occur in the animals’ habitat, such as carrots, birdseed, hay, or salt blocks, it can lead to illness or death. Wildlife officials decided it be best if they moved the animal to a more remote and safe location so that's what they did.
