FROM ROANOKE POLICE: RPD Animal Wardens have received several calls for service regarding “abandoned” fawns. We want to remind you that it’s normal for a fawn to be alone during the day. Does will leave their fawns in safe spots while they find food. If you find a fawn, leave it alone. Their mother is usually in the area and should return at dusk. If you notice a fawn that has been in the same spot for a day or two and appears to be in distress, you can call the Department of Wildlife Resources at 1-855-571-9003.

The RPD Animal Wardens took these pictures of fawns that were found in the City of Roanoke. Trust us, we know they’re cute. But they’re better off left alone!
