New animals at Reed Bingham

May 25, 2004

Cook County - A South Georgia state park has a new furry friend.

A baby deer is the newest resident of Reed Bingham State Park. It was rescued by road workers who found it on the side of the road. The fawn's mother had been hit by a car.

Someone also brought in a baby raccoon and possum. "This is the time of year lots of people are bringing us baby animals and they call them animal resuces but most of these animals would be better off if people left them alone, left them where they were," said Chet Powell, Herpetologist.

Powell will take care of the animals for a few weeks, then take them to a wildlife rehabilitation center.
