The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is reminding people not to remove fawns from the wild. The practice is illegal and endangers the life of baby deer.
Theresa Stevenson is an animal rehabilitator at Saint Francis Wildlife Association in Quincy. She says many people bring fawns in.
"So what we have to do is basically put it back," she says. "We take a lot of time taking healthy fawns back to their moms."
Stevenson explains the well-intentioned move has serious consequences.
