    OMG we found a baby deer last night!!! *pics!*

    I wasn't sure where to put this...it wasn't really about a PET...so into general it went! (:

    Around 11:30 yesterday morning my friend called me and told me she found a baby deer in her garage. I ran over there and sure enough, there was an itty bitty fawn wedged between two buckets. The poor thing was TERRIFIED so we tried to stay out of the garage. Every so often we'd check in on it, but we just let it be.

    Then, we went out for ice cream, leaving the garage door open in case momma came to get Bambi (My friend named it, lol). We got back just as Bambi was running out of the garage...with no mom in sight. We kept it from going in the road (using our bodies lmfao) and eventually he stumbled under her deck. We didn't want to bother it, but the poor baby was SO weak, he could barely lift his head. We looked online and basically ended up getting a baby bottle and milk. My friend held Bambi up (Bambi was wrapped in a blanket and she was wearing gloves) while I squirted the milk in her mouth. After we fed her, we set up her under the deck nestled in some grass.

    Sometime between 10:30 last night and 9:00 this morning, momma came for Bambi. The end (:

    But OMG it was SOOO CUTTEE!! And I have pictures! They're not the best because they're off my phone, but it's still ridiculously cute!

    PS - my neighbor happens to work at the environmental center (remember the bird fiasco, anyone?) and she said Bambi couldn't be more then a day old. AWW!

    Bless you for feeding the baby - and very thoughtful of your friend to use the blanket and gloves so Bambi didn't smell too hoomin!

    You likely kept baby alive til Mom got back.

    Maybe you will see them again! Have your camera ready just in case.

    A couple at church have a moose that visits their back yard - and this morning there was a brand new baby moose!

    Spring is full of cute faces! Thanks for sharing!

    Just thought you guys might be interested - One of the neighbors said they saw a deer with a teeny tiny baby this morning - we're hoping it was Momma and Bambi!

    That little one can't be more than a week, two at most, old. In the north part of the US and Canada, does freshen in May, usually later in May. I was worried that momma got killed by a vehicle. If that happed, the fawns only change was a wildlife rehab center.

    Woot!
