Our local black tail deer are giving birth now. A reminder that the doe leaves her fawn alone for long periods of time while she forages for food. She does this so as not to attract possible predators to her baby. Fawns are born without any scent and usually lay still until mom returns. Should you come across a fawn lying still, leave it alone. If the fawn is in immediate danger, gently move it to a safe area close by. Mom will find her baby. If you come across a fawn and are unsure what to do, call a wildlife rescue centre for advice before intervening. If the doe is known to be dead, remove the fawn, keep it warm, dark and quiet and call your nearest wildlife rescue centre ASAP. Do NOT attempt to feed it. Cows milk is deadly to a deer fawn!
