Some interesting things I found:

In general, if a fawn has been found and a doe has not, the fawn is not an orphan. Mothers will leave their fawns all day to feed. They will not return while a human is in the area. This tactic allows the fawn to understand how to function alone. If you watch the fawn for 48 hours and the mother has not returned once, you probably have an orphan. The following steps will guide you through taking care of the orphan.

Read more: How to Care for a Baby Deer | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/how_2123650_care-baby-deer.html#ixzz0qhZfXRlm


It's not unusual to find a deer fawn or an elk calf in the woods—or even in town—this time of the year.
If you find a deer fawn or an elk calf, the best thing to do is keep your distance and leave the animal right where you found it.

"We receive calls every year from people who found an 'abandoned' baby bird or mammal and would like us to take care of it," says Ron Stewart, regional conservation outreach manager for the Division of Wildlife Resources.

"While we appreciate and share the caller's concern, the best thing to do with a baby deer or elk is to leave it right where you found it."

http://wildlife.utah.gov/news/09-06/baby_deer.php

The best way to make sure that a fawn that appears to be alone is orphaned is to wait and check it periodically.  Before taking any action, remember the following:

If the fawn is not injured, the mother is likely nearby.

Leave the fawn alone and its mother will probably come and get it. Deer can take better care of their young than a human can.

Human scent on the fawn will not prevent the mother from taking care of it.

If you do not see any deer nearby, have someone watch the fawn without being seen by the mother. In most cases, the mother will come back and get the fawn after you leave the area.

If you believe the mother has not returned to a nest or a deer has not come back to feed her fawn, or you know that the mother is no longer alive, call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.

http://www.pendleton-gazette.com/news/rescueinjuredwildanimal.html

This is the time of year when lots of calls come in about what to do with young wild animals. Many people think a fawn laying in the grass is alone and abandoned, when the truth is that the doe is nearby but keeping the fawn safe by staying out of sight much of the day.

http://blogs.mdc.mo.gov/blog/?p=345

So, you’ve found a baby deer…

Determine if it needs to be rescued:

    * If it is lying quietly and unbothered by flies, it is fine. Moms leave their babies in one spot while they graze for the day.
    * If you see flies and the baby is not moving to get them off, something is wrong and it may need care.
    * Deer keep their spots until they get their winter coat. The fawn can be 4 months old, 45 lb and still have spots.

Always bring it to a rehabilitator if:

    * It has been injured, hit by car, or attacked by a dog and there are numerous flies and mom is nowhere to be found.
    * If you know for a fact that mom was killed (fawn was standing beside a dead adult next to the road).

Leave it alone if:

    * It is lying quietly and there are no flies. They will not run from you; mom tells them to stay put until she returns.

If you have to bring it to a rehabilitator:

    * Place in a size appropriate kennel lined with a towel. Keep warm.
    * NOTE: Deer fawn can only be rehabilitated by a licensed deer rehabilitator for the County it is found in!
    * Autumn Winds Rehab can only take deer/fawns from Pulaski County.

I think this needs to be posted in the WPD where it can be viewed easily because I doubt if they even read their training manuals. I'd be suprised if they even have manuals.
My question is.....If a citizen would have shot the fawn I bet WPD would've arrested them, so why is nothing being done to this so-called Police Officer? Is she above the law? At least suspension until an investigation is done.
You can bet Mr. Mayor will not be receiving my vote come election time, if nothing is done about this!!

I am glad to see there are so many animal lovers here.  I would expect to see the donations flooding in for the new animal shelter that will be a no kill shelter.  I don't see any of you out to lynch the owners of the many abused and neglected animals that can be found fairly easy throughout the county.  If you are going to be an animal lover put your money where your mouth is.

I think we who live and work in the Ozarks for the most part respect nature and accept that we are the "keepers" of this nature and the animals who share our natural areas with us.   Deer and other wildlife are constantly being "lost in the suburbs" due to the woods being cleared for more housing developments.  The very least we can do is perserve their lives and help them when we can.  This was a perfect opportunity for the WPD to show some community spirit and pride in their department.  Guess a trigger happy cop blew that away (pun) didn't they?  It will take more than a little effort on their part for me to gain full respect for them again.

JuneBug67, though I commend you for soliciting funds for the new animal shelter, your method is lacking in thought.  There are many people here in this county that have taken in animals that were discarded, at no cost to anyone else, but themselves, hence putting their money where their mouths are.  In today's economy, each of these people should be commended for their sacrifices, not shamed into donating to the shelter.  Yes, the shelter needs funds and I sincerely hope they receive the needed funds, but do not think because someone can not donate to the shelter that they are not doing their part to protect/defend our critter friends.

Some seem to be above the law.  Only the subjects, I mean citizens are subject to law.  Of course, many here don't know the difference between a citizen and the police.  The police can arrest us for misdemeanors.  Any of us can effect an arrest for a felony.

I am not animal lover.  I have no problem with animals being but down for a reason and by proper means. I do not like the way this was handled. If animal control was able to rope it why was there a need to shoot it? She fired a weapon twice at close range (bad Shot or buck fever) to kill a fawn when others stated that they would pay to have properly cared for.  It appears it was done in front of people with no concern for their safety (this is a guess on my part).  Like they say, one aww shit will wipe ten attaboys(girls) it is often that one mistake can and has ruined careers. After reading what councilwoman Hardman wrote that she checked into it and by what she has said about it she was lied to. If Police Chief Carter thinks this was handled appropriately then I feel sorry for the citizens and businesses in Waynesville.   So until WPD thinks this worthy of their attention let’s speculate the hell out this then maybe they may say something worth hearing. I still hope PETA comes and makes a big deal out it.
Not picking on you marsnot but if someone tries to make a citizen arrest on me they better have a gun (I bet you would though which is a good thing) If I committed a crime there is no way I would allow a citizen to arrest me for it.  Something to remember - If they are wrong then they can be held liable for making a false accusation. I t is better to call the police and let them come kill the crook for being sick. After all don’t you have to be a little sick in the head to be committing a felony.

Chas, I am only making the analogy.  I personally would not try to affect a felony arrest.  The fact remains, this officer did commit a crime and will not be held publicly accountable as most of us would be.  Rick is correct.  Any one of us would have been arrested on the spot for discharging the firearm in the city limits when it was not in self defense.

To make it clear I am not advocating for money for the shelter, this is just all CRAZY!!!!  I really am not even advocating for the officer. I wasn't there so I will reserve my judgement for that later.  I too have taken in animals that were dumped and I realize many in this community do on a regular basis.  I just feel that as I read all the comments on this topic there is a lynch mob mentality. I  know I will taking a lynching for stating my opinion, but here is another question. Why is there not as much outrage for the conservation agents whose job is to handle such matters who may have prevented this whole situation? To me killing an animal that is not sick or a danger (for the purpose of eating it) is the same and it doesn't make any difference if it is a cat, dog, rabbit, squirrel, take your pick of any animal.

Junebug, do you eat meat?  I do hunt deer each season.  I do eat it and share the meat with others not as fortunate as myself.  The hunting season acutally cuts down on the disease of the animals. Would you rather see them suffer and die with disease?

True but the law enforcement should've contained the "Baby" deer until someone came along who had the authority to make a decision...I mean really what is a newborn deer gonna do to someone???Difference between Conservation and law enforcement is coming right when needed is... there are just a few conservation agents and how many cops? If conservation could have that many cops they wouldn't have issues going to a call, impatience and ignorance is all this was and overall was totally wrong??

As to the conservation department. One on my sons is VERY good friends with the son of an agent.  Agents can write tickets just like law enforcement and in fact are law enforcement for nature.
 
I am just having a problem with how CRAZY everyone is acting over a deer and wonder why the same love and concern isn't given to ALL animals with the same amount of passion?

Vanilla Princess posted exactly what happened as she was THERE.  What she and the others witnessed was horrible.  They were trying to take care of the fawn, protecting it, just to have an Officer come and shoot it, NOT once, but twice.  The Officer MISSED the first time (apparently injuring the fawn) then had to shoot again.  You do NOT shoot an animal in the face, you shoot it in the head so that the brain functions stop.  Shooting it because it was "not cooperating" is the LAMEST excuse I have ever heard of.  The fawn is dead, but the story isn't over for all those that witnessed what happened.  THAT is why so many people are upset......

Matrsnot I knew that  I was just playing. I agree with you and Rick.  For JuneBug67 if the cop would of done this to a different animal say a squirrel I would still be just as mad about it. For me it not so much as what was killed but how. The fact it was a fawn does make it worse. This was just plain handled wrong  from the officer deciding the animal was sick when there are eyewitness saying it was not to how and where she shot  it and the conduct of the officer, laughing not cool and very unprofessional and the silence ( whats the cover up for)from the police chief makes it even more of a problem whether he feels it was appropriately or not he should address it he still a public servant ,however most police officers tend to forget that.

JuneBug....I would have posted this if it were any animal....not just a fawn. To me it's not JUST that it was a helpless fawn. I am concerned that a weapon was fired within the city limits for the reason it was. In a public place and in front of people. The the officer laughed. An animal was killed out of season. The entire situation is out of hand. Even if it had been a sick dog....I would hope the area would have been "cleared" for safty and for those sensitive to the situation. And to laugh about it....totally unprofessional all the way around. I have an idea who this police officer is and but I am not sure and I would have never thought she would have done something like this....therefore maybe an evaluation is in order....something else going on with her? JMO....

I know for one I called the sheriff's office years ago over a dog that was tied up. I pitbull type dog....it took an act of congress to get someone out there. THEN I was treaded like the bad person....possible a POed neighbor. I didn't even know the neighbor I was calling on, I followed up on this call, something I am sure the officer did not expect and he said the owners had gone out of town and he fed & watered the dog. Apparently he knew them and just assumed I was trying to cause problems.

From my experience I have found conservation agents, highway patrol and water patrol seem to have my more "class" and respect towards civilians than do most city/county police.....why is this?

Honestly if this police officer would have come forward and said they were sorry and they made a mistake, the public wouldn't be so hard on them....but we have heard nothing.

I call the police everytime I see an animal in distress, either from owner negligence or if it is a stray.  I am very protective of animals of all kinds and I would be just as upset if an officer I called to help an animal, pulled out his gun and shot it.  Now if the animal was attacking people or other animals that is a different story.  No indication that this baby was doing anything but waiting for its momma to come back and get it.
When I was young, I wanted to be older.  This is not what I expected!

I just heard that KY3 was on there way to the bank to do a story on it.
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, So love the people who treat you right, Forget the ones who don't, and believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Think the WPD will have a "no comment" attitude now?
