Every year hundreds of healthy fawn are taken into captivity by well meaning people who just don’t know any better.

A fawn found lying alone, but otherwise looking healthy, 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.
