INVERNESS, Ala. (WIAT) — A wildlife expert rescued a fawn from flood waters behind a home in Inverness Wednesday.
The baby was just hours old. Her mother apparently got scared off by barking dogs.
Once the fawn was warmed up, she was placed in a safe area near where she was rescued and fell right off to sleep.
By Thursday morning she was gone. We assume the fawn’s mother came back for her once she felt it was safe.
A reminder from wildlife experts: if you see a fawn never move them unless it is absolutely necessary for their safety.
Never move them more than sixty or so feet. Their mother is likely nearby and will call out to the fawn to find them.
Always call wildlife experts or state officers if you have any questions.
