oh deer

this morning we had a little visitor...a stray fawn wondered into our yard/driveway...i thought i had seen "bambi" meander thru my garden earlier. the neighborhood we live in is right in the midst of a deer farm & we see deer come through all the time, though usually under the cover of darkness or early dawn...but here it is, almost 10 o'clock in the morning, nestled in some tall grass (thank goodness for ZOOM lens!)... we think its mother was either killed or separated from this little deer one...he (or she) looked awfully frail & skinny...joe told me to get some milk, which i found & then i remembered one of the twins' old bottle (sorry ian...but i think you won't be needing this as you are a big boy of 4 now!)... we hope that this little one makes it...he/she scurried under joe's van... & nestled under it as you can see...we made pureed applesauce, since it didn't seem to want the milk (maybe bec. it was fat free! lol)...it stayed under joe's work van for a good couple of hours...then it started to thunder & storm...it ran off into the woods across our driveway...we hope it hangs in there. joe already called someone who might want to rescue this fawn...if it doesn't pan out, then he's going to let nature take its course... who was it that said the survival of the fittest? was that darwin? i hope that little guy makes it through...i hate to think what might become of him/her...let's think positive thoughts, shall we? Posted by Picasa

    I can't believe it let you get so close to it. So sad, hope it finds it's mama. We see lots of deer here in WV coming in from the woods, Jacob likes to think they are moose, but it's amazing how tame they can be. Maybe if you put a little food out it will come back.

    How amazing to have a baby fawn. Another lady can't remember who, on her blog said that she hasd deer come into her back garden, but they eat all the plants. Her in Wales the only things wandering our mountains are sheep, not very exciting!!
