Fawns 7-11-2019

All of these four babies pictured here, presently rescued by Keeper of the Wild, had mothers that were hit by cars and killed. May they be a reminder to everyone to drive safely and slower through wooded areas and even neighborhoods. 


Remember,too, if you see one deer there may be more as does tend to hang in small herds with their new babies, often twins, and yearlings. They know their herd, however small, helps to keep them safe and survive so they never want to be separated from them. Thus, when you see one, other members of the herd are nearby and are sure to follow. This is also why we strongly encourage that individually injured or truly orphaned fawns found be brought to Keeper of the Wild to be raised with, bond with, and released together as a herd to benefit their survival and longevity.

Important Reminder 7-3-2019.

Remember, nestlings can go back in a nest or place in a small basket nearby the nest secured in a tree. Fledglings found on the ground are still in their parents' care and should be left alone. They are gaining confidence and learning how to take care of themselves from their parents and will fly away in a day or three.

Please properly dispose of your garbage and recycling 7-1-2019

You are probably doing a great job properly disposing of your garbage and recycling to protect wildlife, but please make sure your garbage cans have secured lids. I am an opportunistic eater that would much rather depend on the trash of humans. If you secure your garbage can lids it forces me to forage naturally and teach my babies to as well rather than depend on humans. This will increase my natural fear of humans which will increase my survival and longevity.

A reminder from our Director, Janet Kinser 6-30-2019

 "If you see me that doesn't mean that I'm an orphan. My mommy will put me in a place because I'm too little to keep up with her.. Then she will come back and get me so please do not be a fawnnapper because mommy's way is the best way she can teach me things you can't."
