This time of year many fawns are unintentionally “kidnapped” by well meaning people. Fawns lay in a circle with their legs tucked under (like a cat) and remain very still. They have no scent, so being quiet and still is their only defense. The mother will leave the fawn alone so she doesn’t attract predators. Occasionally a fawn will cry to let the mother know to come feed them, but unless the fawn is crying for hours upon hours on end, it is probably not orphaned.
If the fawn is in harms way, you can move it to safety nearby where the mother can find it. Please call the Aark first for instructions and call the Aark for advice anytime you see any wildlife that you think may need help. We can help determine if action is warranted and give you instructions on how to proceed. Thanks!
