Did you find a fawn?

A fawn found alone is most likely not abandoned.  Young fawns cannot keep up with their mother, so the mom will “bed down” their fawn in what she thinks is a safe place and leave it there alone for long periods of time during the day.  If the fawn is wandering around, crying constantly for hours, following people, laying with its limbs stretched out (versus tucked under its body), laying on its side, appears injured or is covered in flies, the fawn may be orphaned.  Contact us at 713-468-8972 immediately for further assistance.  A fawn that is not exhibiting the above signs should be left alone.
