Wildlife: Urban Fawn (Brookfield, WI)

This fawn is a few days old. It was born in our yard, here it is resting under a tree near our house. The Mom is nowhere to be seen. It was found by my wife while picking garlic mustard in our yard.

Truly a very rare sight. Mama goes off and leaves them to eat but you must have a very large yard. They have no smell at that age so unless they move they don't figure they are seen. I have seen them with mama but never just walked up on one. Experience of a lifetime I am sure.

The mother must have been a frequent visitor to your yard, and trusted it to be a safe place to leave her baby. Most unusual though. How nice to have the mother deer trust you so much.

I would want to put out food for her if possible. Uncooked oatmeal, cut apples and carrots, dry cereal. Whatever is natural, wholesome and grainy. Beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing it.
