Going into town with the old man today to get a waffle and some coffee, when we see this fawn running the a fence line on the highway. He just didn't look right- falling down, panicked, unkempt and thin. We pulled over to watch him for awhile, look for mamma, etc. Finally made the decision to try to get him. Once we got him we drove around and did find a dead axis doe a few hundred yards away, possibly his mama.
He came up to me and sniffed me and I grabbed him. We took him to a licensed wildlife rehabilitation facility. They said we did the right thing- he is definitely dehydrated/starving and might have an injury to a rear leg. He tried like heck to nurse my finger and drink my coffee so he should bottle feed easily. Anyway, exotic or not I'm glad we were able to help him. We named him Waffles, as our trip to get some didn't happen, but helping him out was better!
