Wildlife rush for high ground in flood areas

This is heartbreaking, but the wildlife officials are offering good advice, I guess. The animals do not need the added stress of encounters with well-meaning humans.... :cry:

Please don't feed the animals. Or touch them. Or do anything to keep them from crossing levees to escape rising floodwaters.

At a time they are already under stress, deer, bear, turkeys and other animals don't need any interference from humans, wildlife officials said Tuesday.

Across woodlands near the Mississippi and other large rivers, wildlife is on the move. Louisiana has reported deer drownings and Mississippi officials are worried about a spike in deer-vehicle collisions.

Much of the focus is on the Atchafalaya Basin in south-central Louisiana. Over the weekend, the Morganza Spillway was opened, easing the crisis in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, but ensuring millions of gallons of water will flood communities in the basin.
