Babies are left on their own for most of the day for the first few weeks of their lives. Please keep your distance. Observe from a distance for 12 to 18 hours. If you are certain the mother has not returned, please call WildARC at (250) 478-9453. You should call them immediately if:
- the fawn seems frantic, is wandering and bleating consistently, or approaching people
- the fawn is obviously injured
- the fawn has been fed anything by anyone
- the fawn is located in a dangerous or high-traffic area
