According to the Humane Society of the United States, one of the biggest mistakes good-hearted people make is assuming a baby deer observed alone must be an orphan. But the truth is, if the fawn is calm and lying down quietly, the odds are the mother is not too far away. The mother usually visits her baby a few times a day and will avoid revealing her presence while you are around. Unless the fawn is crying or wandering alone, there's no need to contact a wildlife rehabilitator.
