ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Treehouse Wildlife says they have five fawns in rehab.

They want to remind people that if you find an uninjured fawn, chances are the mother will come back to it.

But, if it's visibly injured, crying or wandering around then call for immediate assistance.

Treehouse Wildlife's Facebook post states:

We've been getting a lot of calls about deer fawns! We currently have five fawns in rehab and expect to admit many more. Remember if you find a fawn, as long as it is laying quietly, it should be okay and mom will be back. If the fawn has flies on it, is dirty, visibly injured, crying and/or wandering around call a wildlife rehabilitator for assistance.

Many of our early spring babies such as squirrels and opossums have been released back into the wild or will be released back soon! Some of our orphaned raptors are graduating to our flight cage where they will begin to learn how to hunt as well as build muscles in their wings. It is definitely a busy time in wildlife rehab!
