Ha ha! The forset service and the rangers are overloaded with calls on found/abandoned fawns due to the early hay season. They told me to either leave it to die from nature or take it in myself. In Arkansas the only requirement is that you can keep up to 6 animals of each native species excluding birds and reptiles. No permit required.
He was loaded with manure so I knew he had not been tended to by mama in quite awhile.
Getting ready to eat, then I'll post vid/Picts!

Holy crap! One of the cutest things ever! I wish you luck with him, they are quite fragile mentally (injured adults can rarely be rehabilitated) perhaps because he it's so young, he will be ok. I really hope the little guy does well.

Thanks guys!
Ugh, this is the last thing I have time for. I didn't bottle feed my own child!
Going to be an adventure, prayers and wishes for his good health! He is stinkin cute and tiny tiny. Trying to get a vid uploaded but internet is wonky.

Toni the mother deer abandoned this one. There were two, she took one and left this one. Don't know why. Wish she hadn't left it, going to be some long nights ahead of me! LOL!

Wait, by loaded, you mean with manure, yes? How on earth does that happen, can they not go to the bathroom by themselves?

Also, they are SO CUTE!!!!

I reared a fawn some years ago. We called her Heidi and she was so cute. She spent her first night under the piano in my lounge and forever after that was what she considered 'home'. She would try and jump through windows to get back there. No trouble rearing her. I think we probably fed her powdered lambs milk which is quite common in NewZealand or orphaned lambs. She just ran free. She would sleep in my garden and just appear when she wanted fed. Late afternoon seemed to be a run around time and she would do speed laps round the garden, leaping over me working in the garden! She loved paper and would love to munch away on it! She eventually joined our mob of farmed deer and had a normal long life rearing many fawns of her own. Deer were introduced into New Zealand and have no natural predators, therefore their numbers in the bush became a problem. Deer are farmed here in New Zealand but I would much rather see them running wild!

O.o I want a baaaaaaaaambiii too!!!!!

Lol good for you for trying to take care of it and put it out again in the wild. Although I must admit, who wouldn't want to take care of such a cutie. ;)

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but is it a female or male?
