The C.A.S.H. Courier

ARTICLE from Summer 2005 Issue 

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

Wildlife Watch Hotline

The Wildlife Watch Hotline brings in many calls this time of year. This year, in particular, we’ve had many fawn calls. We try to connect people to wildlife rehabilitators. Please see the R.O.C.K. section of the Wildlife Watch Binocular inserted into the C.A.S.H. Courier.

Many folks who call worry that Mom won’t be back. We have to convince them to delay action until they know that Mom won’t be coming, and the chances are excellent, that the mother will return. We get many calls thanking us for putting their minds at ease and telling us that the mother returned and lead her offspring young one away. If a fawn seems comfortable, just leave him or her alone.

We were gratified to get the following e-mail recently:

Dear Ann,

We followed your advice, about leaving the baby alone!!! We did a lot of watching ... it was right in front of our home under a tree and near the rocks in the photo. It stayed with us for about 2 days, and we were so worried, but we hoped that the mom was coming by at night or when we were not around. We never did get to see her. A male deer was feeding by it and didn’t even know it was there. When he discovered the baby he jumped!! (the male jumped not the baby) It was so funny. He sniffed around for a quick minute and went back to feeding. We were going to give it one more day and then call you back but it left in the late afternoon...hopefully with its mom. We did see a mom one day later with 2 babies, hopefully it was our little guest.

Thanks for the advice.

M.M.

Valley Cottage, New York
