Nature at it's best. Do think that perhaps the fawn belonged to the doe in the photos?

We'll never know for sure, but I think the conclusion is inescapable that the dead fawn was the old doe's (one of two). The doe has been in the yard almost daily eating the tiny drops from the apple tree. We've still not seen the second fawn although it did appear on some camera trap photos taken not long after the other fawn died. Haven't checked the cameras in a bit over a week, so it will be interesting to see if the fawn is still around (alive?).

Neat observations. The maternal attachment is powerful. I've heard that shepherds induce maternal ewes to accept an orphan lamb by rubbing the orphan with her own lambs scent.

I had a series of pics in winter of a doe eating a rabbit carcass I put out for coyotes she would come each day and dig it out of new snow and chewed the legs and ears off from it .
