Fawn Scared & Trembling After Falling into Pool. Rescued by Family Before Reuniting with Mother

Share

Early summer is the time when most fawns are born. The adorable creatures are born with white spots that help them hide from predators in the sun-patched ground.

Often times, people find fawns that they think are orphaned simply because they are alone. I have encountered a fawn in this situation and believed the mother was gone, too.

Surprisingly, however, the doe usually keeps a good distance from her fawn to protect it from predators. The fawn does not have an odor yet like the mother, so she tries to prevent attracting predators to her baby by staying at a distance.

The mother usually makes sure she has a good view of her fawn during the day, so when we see a baby alone, the doe is most likely hiding out of our sight but keeping a close eye on it.

Sometimes, these fawns can run into trouble. The one that I saw in my backyard almost fell into my neighbor’s unfilled pond! I was so worried that he was going to fall in and get stuck, but thankfully, he ran around it.

One family ended up finding a fawn who had fallen into their swimming pool. They were able to rescue the little deer right before she drowned.

The poor baby was shaking as she was cold and scared without her mother, but the family was kind enough to help dry her off with a towel and calm her down.

The fawn was still slipping and shaking as she tried to stand up, and soon the family noticed the mother was in the wooded area of their backyard, watching her baby.

Once the baby saw her mother, she soon started to call out to her. The family made sure that the fawn was all dry and calm before they let her venture back to her mother.

Once they released her from their fenced-in deck, the baby started to head back toward the pool, and so they tried to guide her in the right direction

Finally, the fawn saw its mother and ran over to be reunited with her.

The mother continued to watch the family as if she was thanking them for helping her baby.

Thanks to this family, the fawn was able to return to her mother and live a longer life. A mother and her child is quite a beautiful picture.

If you happen to come across a fawn who seems alone, it is advised to keep your distance so the mother can take care of it. Make sure you do not touch the fawn, but if you have to, make sure you wipe an old towel in the grass or dirt and wipe it on the fawn to remove any human scent left behind.
