Saturday, several people in my neighborhood found a fawn laying under a tree near our playground. The adorable newborn looked exhausted and I worried it was abandoned. I had never seen a fawn away from its mother. We stayed away and asked for advice from a professional.
After consulting my cousin Ian who’s an environmentalist, he told us that it’s actually normal for newborns to be separated from mom during the day. He said to leave it alone and advised it’s especially important not to touch or move the fawn.
This was news to me and I figured it would be news to many of you so I wanted to share with you guys what I learned.
