Early this afternoon I was standing in the kitchen and saw a deer about 10 feet from the house. I soon realized that she had a baby with her. I was able to get several shots from between the slats of the wooden blinds. The baby can’t be very old.
After the mom and baby walked into the neighbor’s yard the fawn fell down while crossing the street. I think it was scared of a car that was approaching very slowly. The car hung around so long that the mom ran away!
We called 311 to see if they could tell us what the city might do if the baby is abandoned, and they said not much. So, we are keeping a watch to see if the mom comes back. 😦
Update: We kept an eye on the little guy all afternoon and evening. When I woke up at 4 AM the next morning, i looked out the window to see this (momma deer laying down on the lawn next to where the fawn was). Yay momma deer!
I’m glad I saw this or I would have always wondered what happened to the baby deer.
