Ashley Nielsen sent us these photos of an adorable baby fawn they rescued this past summer. “We found the fawn on our property of almost 90 acres outside of Sand Lake,” said Nielsen. The family kept the fawn for four days, until they found a man outside of Fremont that takes in injured or rescued deer at any age and then releases them back into the wild.
“When we rescued the fawn, she slept inside our home with us because we have three dogs that we didn’t trust alone with her,” said Ashley. “We named her Bambi because when she tried to walk through our kitchen, she slipped around just like the storybook Bambi on the frozen pond. It was a really awesome few days.”
Bambi is shown here with Ashley’s daughter, Abbigail, 4. “Abby still talks about missing her,” said Ashley.
