I watched this Whitetail Doe and Fawn for almost two weeks. I noticed the Fawn has something wrong with its mouth and nose. I researched what this could be and the information I found wasn’t very positive for the survival of the Fawn.

Another dangerous thing for this Fawn is a Coyote I see in the same area. I have seen it on two occasions.
