This young Common Reedbuck lamb hides in a thicket covering awaiting...🍼
Too often, when we are out walking with our dogs, running or riding, and we sometimes bump into baby wildlife. Our first instinctive thought is that they have been abandoned by their mother. But, this may not always be the case. Mothers often hide their young in thickets, where they are safe from predators and will return to feed them periodically, only when the coast is clear. If you are even unsure if an young wild animal is being hidden from threats or has been abandoned then please give FreeMe Wildlife a call on 033-330-3036 for guidance from our experienced staff. ❤️
At FreeMe Wildlife, we simulate a natural environment while hand-rearing young wildlife such as this Common Reedbuck lamb. We encourage natural behaviour, such as lying still in thickets until feeding time. These pictures hope to demonstrates how this is done at FreeMe Wildlife. Wildlife babies never run up to their surrogate mothers to seek unnatural companionship, they are never "petted" or tamed, and they are never imprinted. This is what professional wildlife rehabilitation is about, ensuring the best for the survival of species back in the wild as a wild animal.
FreeMe Wildlife takes pride in leading through example.
We love what we do, and how we do it...
