Last Sunday a doe ran through our side yard. It's not that unusual as we are outside the city limits and have a small amount of woods near us. I was in the front yard and watched her. Once she got to the neighbors across the street she stopped. I think she was thinking about coming back until a van came by. Then she ran into the woods behind the neighbors house.My MIL lives next door and had watched the doe as she was in the backyard. Otherwise we never would have known she left us a surprise. Under my patio set was a little BAMBI. I didn't know what to do so I called Wild Animal Control. The guy on the phone was no help, he just told me a lot of people keep them and raise them. I was leaving for vacation that evening and we don't have a fenced in yard. I called the police and they said they couldn't do a thing for me. Where's the Animal Activists when you need them?
We waited 8 hours hoping that the mom would come back. In the meantime the baby didn't even move! We have seen foxes in the area and were afraid if we left the deer over night for the mom to come, it could be killed.
