In virtually every case, human intervention ends badly for the animal.
When a doe gives birth, Ron Kimmerley, an officer with the DNR, explained to FOX17, they may leave the babies alone for brief stints.
In fact, "99.9 per cent of the time when the people come in contact with these little fawns, everything is perfectly fine, just leave them alone, the mom will come back after dark," he told the news station."When they touch the fawn and bring the fawn in, it's pretty much a death sentence for the deer."
Babies in the wild don't need human mothers. And they are certainly not pets in waiting. If you find an animal who appears to be in trouble, call the nearest wildlife rescue.
