IDFG advises to leave fawns alone

April 25, 2012


Citizen editor

With the recent wild deer incident with David Priestley and his boys, Idaho Fish and Game Officer Korey Owens wants to warn folks that finding a fawn in the wild and bringing it home is highly discouraged. During the next few months people may find a young fawn that may appear to be abandoned. That is generally not the case. The mother doe often is not far away and may be feeding on nearby vegetation. Owens is encouraging people to leave young fawns alone.

David Priestley recently took a picture of the suspected buck with his cell phone at about five yards.

If the fawn is found in the same place the next day, Owens said to call him or another Idaho Fish and Game official and report it.

Owens said the problem deer that had to be dispatched had all of the characteristics of a pen-raised wild animal.
