    So cute! Did the mother deer take the baby back after it had been handled?

    Yes.....not sure what had happened. The baby started crying so Meg picked it up and then noticed the mother deer moving forward in the woods so she put the fawn down at edge of woods and mom came and got the little thing. It wasn't even walking at first. Poor Meg wanted to be "like Audrey Hepburn and have a 'pet' deer". She knows the baby is better off though.....the Sherrif's Dept was a HUGE help.

    I think fawns are the sweetest looking babies out there.
    Does will place their fawns in a safe (to them) place and leave them while they forage for food. If anyone finds a fawn alone, it is usually best to take a "watch and see" approach before disturbing or "rescuing" the baby. The majority of the time the mother will return for her baby. If in doubt, you can always call a wildlife rescue/rehab facility for advice (many hotline numbers can be found online). Obviously, if the fawn is in danger from traffic, dogs or other hazards, you would want to keep it safe. Sadly, many fawns become orphaned unnecessarily each spring because well meaning people think they are abandoned and "rescue" them.

    For several years, we had a doe that would bring her twin fawns into our front yard and the fawns would rest under the tree next to our deck.
    They haven't been around for about 3 years... I miss my deer.. :(

    My husbands cousin had the same thing happen. The mother came up in the yard and left the babies, and then would go eat. Then the people started feeding them...and of course they stayed around. The doe was round for several years, and not afraid of people. We had a picnic at there place out in the country and the doe came right up on the deck and took an apple from someone. I think the babies grew up and went off, and then the mother stopped coming around too. Who knows what happened to them. I try not to think about it.

    What a wonderful picture, so sweet. However, I do need to share this. A couple my dog was out doing her business one morning in our yard (we live in the woods) and I think she got too close to where a mama deer had her baby, and the mama deer attacked my dog and tore her up pretty bad. She was beating her with her front hooves. It was the scariest thing I have ever seen.
