Handling or Harboring Wild Animals
Please resist handling or harboring wild animals

Wild animals are protected by state regulations and may only be kept by those who are licensed as rehabilitators through the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR).  In addition to being illegal, the keeping of wild animals by those who are untrained/unlicensed often results in the death of the animal.  Also, there are many dangers associated with handling wild animals such as rabies, distemper, parasites and mange.
