This is the time of year when our local wildlife make their presence known and not always in a pleasant manner. Everybody loves the sight of a newborn fawn or a black bear or even a family of baby woodchucks cavorting on the lawn. Baby bunnies are so cute and chipmunks bring us all of us senior citizens memories our youthful days, watching Chip and Dale cartoons!
The amusement of all this fades quickly when the babies grow up and munch down with our gardens and landscape plantings!
FEARLESS FAWN: Many people erroneously assume that the fawn is “abandoned” or in need of rescue. Almost always, this is not the case as momma deer is probably nearby resting after giving birth and she will attend to her baby as soon as the humans leave it alone. So, please, just leave the fawn alone!
