The Little Animal is Lost

Little animals are not lost in the woods, the mother is close by.

While getting a camp fire permit at Pinecrest Ranger Station, Tuolumne County, CA, there was a knock at the door. When the ranger opened the door, there stood two men holding a small fawn, which looked less then a week old.


"We found this little fawn lost on the beach, and we thought that you would know how to get it back to its mother," said the man holding the fawn. "The fawn is not lost," said the ranger with a smile. "The mother left the fawn to get something to eat, or to rest. Please take it back to where you found it. Thank you."


While looking at the maps in the ranger's office, there was another knock at the door. The ranger opened the door and there standing were a couple with the same fawn. "We found this little fawn at the beach lost," said the man.

The ranger said, "Please take the fawn back to where you found it. The fawn is not lost, the mother is around there somewhere eating or sleeping. Thank you."


"It never fails," the ranger said. "People think that these little animals are lost and they are rescuing the animal by bring it to the ranger station. They don't realize that the mother leaves the animal by itself while she eats or sleeps."
     

If you see a baby animal alone in the woods, like a fawn, leave it alone, the mother is somewhere around there.
