    We have a baby fawn right by the end of our front porch. Apparently the dog has brought it in, I don't think the mama would have left it there, not with the dogs on the porch! I doubt the mama will come back for it, so what do I do with it?

    Call the wildlife conservation and find out what you need to do. If you can retrace your dog's steps, you can leave the fawn there in hoping the mother will come for it. Check on it for a day or two to make sure it went with his mom. If not, then wildlife officer will have to come for it.

    get the dogs in and call fish and game or animal control who will tell you who to call or call them for you. you trying to raise a fawn is a huge task, likely one without a good outcome anyway. Many fish and game divisions have people on hand who are equipped to do so.
