They took care of the fawn like their own, and kept it safe until its mommy returned. The child was waiting for her mother on a ranch near Steamboat Springs in Routte County, Colorado. When the horses approached the little creature and realized it was alone, they started caring for it.
Kally May, the ranch owner, noticed something unusual in her horses and went to investigate. But her heart melted for a moment when she saw the lovely sight. She even managed to snap some pictures !
Since the mother deer was nowhere to be seen, Kally began to worry a little, thinking that the baby deer might be an orphan. So the woman called wildlife officials. But they told her to leave the fawn where it was because eventually her mother would come back.
This behavior is actually widespread among deer. Mothers often leave their babies alone when they look for food. They act like this to avoid predators and move faster !
After learning that all she had to do with the newborn fawn was “let it be,” Kally acted right. The next day, Kally was pleased to find out the mother-baby pair together! “The fawn’s mother came back this morning!” May wrote on Thursday. “It was a very happy ending.”
