Some friends came in with this little guy that they’d rescued off a back road. Just in case, I called the local rescue gal and she advised putting it back as I was pretty sure she would, so that’s what we did. It seemed very happy to be back and trotted off and hid under a bushy maple sapling. We’ll go back up before dark just to be sure it’s momma did come back for it.
I know it’s hard to resist an “orphan”, but please try to. Most of the time you’d be making an orphan rather than saving one. 😦
PS: We went back up just before Dark and there was a group of adults in the meadow and no sign of the fawn so I’m sure it is happily reunited with it’s mother.
