Good advice when finding injured or orphaned wildlife

Good advice when finding injured or orphaned wildlife

With spring on the doorstep, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) would like to remind the public that the best thing to do when encountering injured or orphaned wildlife is to leave it alone and undisturbed.

Each year LDWF receives calls from concerned citizens who have found what they believe to be orphaned or abandoned mammals. It is against the law to capture, transport or possess mammalian wildlife and generally, those animals are better off left where they are found.

During the upcoming spring and summer months, the public is more likely to encounter or observe young wildlife with and without their parents. The presence of juvenile wildlife is common during these seasons as young wildlife begins to explore their environment, learn to forage/hunt and defend themselves.

With the win over the Caldwell Spartans in the 1st round of the Louisiana High School Basketball State Playoffs the Giants would move on to the 2nd round where they would take on the Sophie B. Wright Warriors from New Orleans.

The Warriors came in as the #11 seed and earned their way to the 2nd round with a 74-69 win over Donaldsonville. The Giants were trying to win a 2nd round game and move on to the quarterfinal round for the first time since the 1996 season.

Once again it would be a great atmosphere as the Jena High School Band was in the building and the Giants Fans did a great job of filling up Guy Campbell Memorial Gymnasium.

First Giants playoff win in 20 years!

Twenty years ago the Giants traveled to Patterson, Louisiana and defeated the Patterson Lumberjacks in the first round of the class 3A state basketball playoffs. That would be the last time a Jena Giants men’s basketball team won a playoff.

The Giants defeated Caldwell twice during the regular season as they won 62-55 at Caldwell and 73-50 at home.
