    i found a dead fawn today. There was no sign anything killed it. I buried so it wouldn’t attract flies but I’m wondering what might have caused the fawn to die. There was another fawn by the dead one when I initially found it so it looks like the doe had two fawns. Thanks for any insight

    Mom could have gotten hit by car

    First time mom didnt know what to do & abandoned them

    Like 30pt said, born defective

    Either way it sucks to find dead fawn
