VFW: Leave those fawns alone

Posted: Updated:
It's the time of year when deer fawns are being born, and people in Vermont are being asked to avoid disturbing the animals.

Most fawns are born during the first and second weeks of June. Deer biologists say when people see a fawn alone, they often mistakenly assume it is helpless, lost or needing to be rescued. But often the mother is nearby.

Bringing a fawn into a human environment results in separation from its mother, and biologist say that usually results in a sad ending for the animal.
