If you’re the camping type, a trip to the Grand Canyon may be one of the top destinations on your bucket list. Of course, be careful when you’re approaching any kind of wild animal, no matter how innocuous it might seem.
In one of the park’s ranger stations, a young couple knocked on the door. The couple claimed that they’d been approached by the fawn while exploring the canyon. Assuming the fawn was in need, they wrapped the little guy up and tromped over the ranger station.
However, as tempting as it might be to try and save these vulnerable animals, just don’t do it. The animals in national parks are truly wild, which means that any kind of prolonged contact with humans could prove very harmful to any wildlife.
Fortunately, the fawn was successfully reunited with its mother, but this couple is looking at a potential fine for breaking the park’s rules about feeding or contacting the animals in the park.
