Spring Is Deer Birthing Season

A visitor at a golf course in Ohio was trampled by a mother deer when he got too close to her. But, what happened? Deer are usually docile animals; and they tend to avoid human interaction.

Late spring is deer birthing season to fawns; and it is possible that the doe lashed out on the visitor if it seemingly got close to a baby deer. DNR and wildlife rehabilitators urge people to leave deer alone, especially if they see a fawn left unattended. These animals are usually not orphaned or abandoned. Doe tend to leave their fawns alone for hours to find food for them and keep them protected away from predators.
