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.
