Health Tip: Wildlife Safety

(HealthDay News) -- Both national and local parks afford visitors excellent opportunities to see animals in their natural habitats.

But these situations come with risks and responsibilities. Wild animals can be dangerous and unpredictable, says the National Park Service.

It urges park-goers to follow these guidelines:

  • Observe wildlife from a distance.
  • Do not feed wild animals.
  • Keep children in sight at all times.
  • Store food properly.
  • Do not set up camp near game trails.
