Sleeping Fawn

While riding bareback near the Little River, my friend and I came upon a sleeping fawn. We were concerned for the fawn’s safety and so checked in on her several times in the next 8 hours. We spoke with a DEC Wildlife Rehabilitator, who assured us that it is not usual for a baby fawn to be alone for several hours.
