It has that "deer in the headlights" look.

Does will leave their fawns alone for hours and hours. They just lay there and wait.

It's amazing where mom will stash the babies while they go about their normal routine. Normally they leave them in a very well camoflaged spot but occasionally, not so much, especially if it's the does' first fawn.

Our previous house had a very long gravel driveway that wound up through a lawn to the road. One morning on my way out to work there was a newborn fawn laying in the middle of the driveway with mom nowhere to be found. Coyotes were an issue as we raised sheep and those &^$% things were always around. When I saw the fawn I'm thinking to myself "what are you thinking mom, you cannot leave that little guy right there in the open like that". I donned a pair of gloves so as to leave as little scent as possible and gently moved the little guy about 20 feet into tall grass beside a stone wall.

When I got home from work later that day, mom and junior wre grazing together on my front lawn. They hung around our place until fall that year so I felt I had done my good deed and never again did I see him left alone in the open like that.

I actually like the idea of leaving the fawn by the front door. No predator is going that close to a house and it looks to be a nice sunny spot.
