Deer

Have you found a fawn? Is it actually orphaned? Fawns feed only at dusk and dawn when the mother returns. If the fawn is lying quietly, it is probably not orphaned. If the fawn is crying and wandering, it might need your assistance. Go to this link, record the audio and play the attached fawn distress call, which may attract either the mother or another doe which may adopt the fawn if it has lost her own baby or has a fawn close to the same age.

If you find an injured fawn or adult, cover its head with a blanket or jacket to help limit stress. Then call us.
