Delta BC

As the season for spring cleaning, gardening, lawn cutting and general maintenance is in full swing there is always a chance that you may find baby wild animals in a shed or garage. Because these places usually are not to active over the winter, females might decide that your shed, garage or attic may be the perfect place to have her little ones. So if you find a nest of animals living in your shed or garage, it's best to leave them there until they leave on their own. Don’t assume the baby animals have been abandoned if they are discover on their own. Mothers will often leave babies while they go foraging for hours at a time, depending on the species. If leaving them be for a few weeks isn't an option, then you may need to set up a similar spot nearby for the mother to rebuild her nest and move her young.
