More than likely, from what I have seen from my wildlife rehabber friends, cows milk would be disastrous for this little creature. Your best bet is to find a rehabber near you. Look on this link and call and find out.

Birgit is the director of this great rescue. There is a link and she has a facebook also. she is very good at rehabbing and her page is very informative.
Rehabbing is very difficult, and usually better left for the few hours it take to get the animal to a licensed rehabber, for its own sake and for your own sake also as there are laws regarding wildlife and the fines are very high.
It is so sweet that you are trying to help these animals, maybe there is a wildlife rehabilitation career in your future?

Check this site for a rehabber as close to you as possible for help with this wonderful small creature.
Also the fish and game dept in your area may have a wildlife rehabber listed also.

This one will depend on how old the baby mole is.

  1. If the baby is rather small you'll need a box, a towel, and a hot water bottle.
  2. Fill the hot water bottle to your body temperature. Don't make it too hot. Put this in the box and put the towel on top of the hot water bottle. Afterwards, put the baby mole on top of the towel.

  4. You will need to make a homemade kitten forumula to feed the baby. You can always buy this at your local vet stores.
  5. You will prepare the formula and feed this to the mole using a syringe.
  6. When feeding the baby you will hold it in one hand and drop the formula into the mouth with the other hand.
  7. Just keep checking the water bottle and make sure it is not getting too cold. The mole needs heat and this is the only source of heat you are supplying the baby.

My grandson found a mole that is about 3 inches in length, but has no fur. We know what you feed a full grown mole, but how do we know if this is a small one or an older one?

You probably need to talk to a wildlife rehabilitator to see what to do with it, or if it's even legal for you to have it. In some states, it's illegal for someone who's not a licensed rehabilitator to keep a wild animal, even if it's a baby or injured. Not only that, they might need special care you don't know about. I'm a Facebook friend with a wildlife rehabilitator in my area & it's been a real learning experience about the smallest things that can make or break a wild animals chance of survival.

if you want to save its life then yes, call wildlife removal though it may take them a day or so to come deal with it because I'm sure they're busy

you could wait and see if the mother comes back and takes him away once she realizes the nest has been compromised

you could remove it yourself. Just make sure you protect your hand with gloves and your mouth with a face mask in case of diseases

If baby moles are alone the mother is likely dead. It's recommended to find baby moles help. Much different than other wildlife where you try to reunite. The only other animal that I'm aware of that you need to rescue babies for is the opossum. A baby will fall off and momma will keep going and never look back. It's rare that you can reunite a baby possum with its mother.

I found an abandoned baby mole in my backyard on my patio and I was wondering what I should do with it. It's either injured or too young to know how to walk yet I'm not sure.

Contact your local zoo, Department of Natural Resources, or Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. I have heard of each of those types of places have suggested plans for similar type animal issues :)

What do you do when the moles are rejecting the milk mixture when I try to feed some to it? I don't know what I did wrong because now I just have one baby instead of two.
