    Nope... mom was near by and very aware of what was going on. For the first coupe of weeks Does stay close to their fawns but not with them so that they can get away quickly, drawing predators away from the easy meal.

    Have always been told not to touch a fawn as the doe will smell a human touched the fawn and will not take care of it.

    Good to hear Mom wasn't far away. I also heard about touching them and leaving a human scent will cause mom to abandon...don't know if it's true or not. Maybe someone here can confirm or not.

    Hard to say about what mother will do. Their sense on smell is incredible. The mother identifies her young by the smell of her own milk passing through the fawn and she knows it is hers. They will smell the human scent for sure. What she does from there is hard to say. I dont think the results would be the same in every instance. But I was told at a young age to never handle young animals for this reason too.
