After months in the care of the California Wildlife Center in Malibu, California, five orphaned fawns enjoy their first moments back in the wild where they belong.
Orphaned fawns are prevented from seeing human faces and forms during their time in the rehabilitation setting. In keeping with that policy, this video was filmed from behind a camouflage blind in the woods, by a volunteer.
Teagan says: "We found 4-week-old baby Sophie after a terrible storm knocked her from a tree and she rolled onto the road. Mama was no where in sight so we rescued her. After rehydrating her we started feeding her reccomended powdered puppy milk. We were afraid that she'd reject it because it wasn't mama's; boy were we wrong!"
What a wonderful story of rescue and TLC! I hope Sophie is doing well and that this story has a happy ending.
