As most of my readers already know, I’m a cartoonist and I live on a small farm in rural Appalachia. We’re lucky to have a good relationship with the living things here and try to be good stewards. Some of the animals are very comfortable with us, and we like to think this is why a young mother tucked her child in my herb garden for safekeeping.
I found this little fellow when I was checking on my garden just before I left for Denver Comic Con.
He’s breathing fine, we’re leaving him alone, and here’s hoping his mother comes back to take care of him, soon.
Here are guidelines for how to deal with a fawn. A lone fawn is not necessarily an orphan. The best advice: leave him alone. His mother may come back at night when she feels safer.
Have a nice day.
