At two o'clock in the morning, Jesse Fraser and Ashley Cleveland (Critter Control of New Hampshire) took a call from a woman who said she had found and picked up a fawn from the middle of a highway. She was referred to call Jesse and Ashley from a neighboring police department for wildlife rehabilitation. The fawn was frozen in the middle of a downtown interstate. After slowing down to see what was in the highway, the driver stopped and picked up the little fawn and put it in her backseat. Jesse and Ashley took the fawn and fed it a mixture similar to Pedialyte®. They then transferred the fawn to the Elaine Connors Center for Wildlife.
Not all Critter Control offices take wildlife for rehabilitation. If you do find what is thought to be an abandoned wildlife baby, first call a local animal control officer, or a certified wildlife rehab center, or your department of natural resources if possible before touching. They will give you guidance on what to do in that situation.
Great job Jesse and Ashley!! For nuisance wildlife problems in your home or business, call 1-800-CRITTER for your local office.
