Hospital update–week of April 29

The hospital received 169 animals last week, bringing the total to 1127 for this year.

Deer season is starting. If you find a fawn lying or standing quietly, leave it alone. The mother leaves her baby while she is off feeding and will return. If she has twins, she will often leave them in two different locations. Resist the urge to pick up the “abandoned” fawn and let the mother do her job.
