Helping or Hindering Wildlife: Understanding When Baby Deer Need Human Intervention

Now that it’s spring (READ: BABY SEASON!), well-meaning humans often assume that because a fawn is alone she must be an orphan, leading to numerous fawn “kidnappings” each year. In today’s episode, I share tips, guidance, stories, and advice on what to do if you see an “abandoned” baby fawn or an injured adult deer or any wild animal at all. Even if you don’t encounter these situations directly, it’s sooo helpful to know what to do so you can pass it along to your friends, family, and neighbors.
