There is a misconception that a fawn found alone in a wooded area or field has been abandoned by its mother. Instead of taking action to "rescue" the baby deer, leave it alone and keep a close watch. It is completely normal for deer to hide their fawns in shielded areas where they come back periodically throughout the day to feed and tend to them. Unless you know the mother is dead or if you see unusual behavior from the fawn (like wandering alone), it's best to leave it alone. Contact your local wildlife rehabilitation center if you do find a truly abandoned fawn.
