"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies?
Yet not one of them is forgotten by God."
I'm sure God does not forget little baby fawns either. I went out onto the front porch this morning & look what is snuggled behind one of our willow bushes. Look closely behind the middle willow bush.
I am so worried about this sweet little thing. I've mentioned before that our neighbor does not keep his pit bulls on his own property. Other neighbors allow their dogs to run wild as well. Then of course there's the fox that roams our property from time to time. Where is this baby's mamma? I don't know what to do. Any suggestions? I am praying.
I spoke with Jason at the local Humane Society. He said mother deer will often bed down their babies in what they think is a "safe spot" & then come back for them later. Jason suggested I contact Wildlife Rehabilitation since they deal specifically with wildlife. I was put in touch with a WR volunteer, Eva, who agreed with Jason but also stated that the mother deer should have come back for her baby by this time of day. She said to keep watch through the windows to make sure no dogs or wild animals bother the fawn & give the mother another 2 hours to come back. If she fails to return by that time, we are to pick up the fawn, put it in a box inside the garage, & Eva will come pick it up.
