Baby Fawn

This is a wild fawn. Do not think because the mother leaves for a day or more that she has abandoned the fawn. The doe will leave her fawn for that length of time at times. She tells her fawn to stay put. The fawn can live for quite a length of time without milk. It is best to leave them be and call a professional. Fawns who are taken into captivity illegally often die of dehydration due to people feeding them cow's milk. Don't do it unless you are trained and licensed. Disclaimer: The rescued animals shown here were suffering from varied ailments. I rescued them as part of my professional duties. Please check with your individual state and the federal government for rules and regulations regarding animal rescue. All animals that I have rescued were turned over to a Federal and/or State Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for their rehabilitation and release; if possible.
