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 or play directly from your cellphone, the attached fawn distress call. Played loud and long enough just might attract either the mother or another doe who may adopt the fawn if she 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 immediately at (905) 729-0033.
