Nevertheless, coyotes impact young fawns
to some degree everywhere they exist.
Regression analysis of age and fawn
recruitment was significant (R2 = 0.33, F = 6.36, df = 1,13, P = 0.02) showing a gradual decline in the number of weaned fawns
but the regression curve did not reveal an inflection point where fawn
recruitment began a steady decline (Fig.
Alex says the fawns
adopt her as their mum and no longer think of her as human.
Studies of exclusion fencing by other researchers found that fawn
visits to feeders were few and far between where there was fencing.
"The fact that this fawn

is being hand-reared by veterinary nurse Sarah Goodwin at RSPCA Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre, near Nantwich, Cheshire.
In an effort to introduce some pizzazz to the experience, Keith came up with the idea of bringing in the scantily clad fawns
In response to her voice, the fawn
steps out to feed.
An approximate age of huemul fawns
can thus be obtained as follows: AGE = [hoof growth (mm) - 1.5] / 0.35.
Mi-Lu, believed to be the firstever Pere David fawn
to have been successfully bred in captivity, was adopted by Penny's golden retriever Kipper.
JOY: Park warden Howard Smith is delighted at the birth of fawns

Two 4-month-old, laboratory-reared white-tailed fawns
(76 and 81) were housed in a tick-free facility.
A t-test of the percent of each food type eaten was used to test the hypothesis that deer fawns
consumed equal amounts of both types of pellets.
aren't a light tan the way she was.
13 and 15, this variance should double in a population in which fecundity is fixed at two live-born fawns
per female per year and early survival rate is 0.5.
"Two years ago we essentially lost the entire fawn
crop on WMAs like Richland Creek, but these floods were earlier in the year," the biologist said."I suspect many of the earlier-born fawns
