     If you find a family of wild animals living near you, the Kentucky Wildlife Center says there is nothing to worry about.

    They say in most cases, even you come close to an animal's den they will not become aggressive.

    They say in most cases they cannot remove a family of animals from their 'home' and relocate them because of territorial issues that can arise.

    If an animal does come near you the wildlife center says to raise your hands and 'act big' and try to haze the animal away.

    The Kentucky Wildlife Center will have an informational event and a chance to meet their baby animal rescues on May 10th from 6-8pm.
