#snapped: Baby Antelope at Black Thunder

(Gillette, Wyo.) Marilyn Weight sent in this photo of a baby antelope, apparently orphaned, wandering around Black Thunder Mine. A few weeks ago the Department of Game and Fish issued a reminder to not bother baby animals. "The best option for people who come across newborn wildlife is to leave the animal alone. Game and Fish wildlife managers say that most animal mothers hide their young and return periodically to feed them or to nurse. People finding young birds and animals often mistakenly assume that newborns have been abandoned, but this is rarely the case. The mother knows where her young are and will almost certainly return." #county17 #news #snapped
