Deer. Fawns in the Grass / Bushes. They are not Lonely.

I am all for animal rights and welfare, but please when you see a fawn curled up in the grass or bushes do not pick it up and take it away like you're doing it a favor. Don't put your human scent on a fawn because that will attract predators to it. The mother, sensing the human scent, will have to lick it off to throw off the predators. Don't make life any harder for the mother. Remember, a seemingly lonely fawn isn't one at all. In most cases, the mother will be back to care for it. Mom leaves her little one, who already knows to keep quiet, while she forages. Leave fawns alone where you found them!
