Jeffrey the Fawn

I found pictures of the orphan fawn I fostered back in 2004. I was working at the shelter and just as we were closing up, some people brought in a fawn that they found. They said his mother got hit by a car. So since my specialty is orphans (usually KITTENS) it was up to me to take him home. I read all I could about them and just planned on raising Jeffrey and keeping him on our farm. So I cuddled with him and bonded with him and he was around my dogs, and he followed my puppy Joey around (see pics) in the yard. If me or Joey got too far from Jeffrey he would bleat for us to wait up and would run his fastest after us. It was so adorable! If he got scared, he would just curl up in a ball and hide in the grass.

Eventually DNR found out about him and said it was illegal for me to keep him. I tried getting him into a small wildlife zoo we have here, but they were only allowed to take in deer raised on farms, not wild deer. So I had to send Jeffrey to a wildlife rehabilitator. Had I known he would end up there, I wouldn't have bonded with him, or let him around my dogs - for his own safety. But I assumed I could just keep him.

It was such an amazing experience!

Here are the pics!!

Fawns are so adorable. It's illegal to even rehab them in this state, it's so sad!
