Every year hundreds of healthy fawn are taken into captivity by well meaning people who just don’t know any better.
A fawn lying alone, such as the one pictured here, does not need help! Mother deer “park” their babies in the open to keep them safe from predators such as foxes.
Finding a fawn alone is perfectly normal.
How do I know if a fawn needs help?
You will know if a fawn needs help if the following happens:
- It is lying flat out, head and legs away from its body, unresponsive.
- It is running around frantically screaming for over an hour.
- It has been attacked or has obvious life-threatening wounds.
