Is should go without saying, but it happens every year. Individuals with good intentions try and rescue what appears to be an abandoned fawn or other small animal.

Michigan's DNR reminds everyone again this year to "leave the wild, in the wild." Whitetail deer are coming into the final stages of their third trimester and will be having fawns over the next month and a half. Although the may seem abandoned, they are most often not. A doe will often leave fawns to browse (eat) or to just get away from the "kids" for a while. All the while within eyesight or earshot away from the fawn. The same goes for other woodland creatures as well.  A friendly reminder from the MI DNR and your humble WMMQ Outdoorsman!
