What To Do When An Animal Gets Trapped In Your Yard

1. Stay safe

If you try to get close to an animal that is not domestic (which you often can’t tell at a first glance), there’s a risk from the aggressive reaction. Though most commonly known home intruders don’t target people, they can’t understand your friendly intentions. A wild animal’s first instinct is to defend itself. The best way to avoid awkward and possibly dangerous confrontation is to stay away from the animal. Don’t try to catch it or touch it. Instead, try helping it from the distance.
