Blind baby deer rejected by mother

Is doing fantastic!

She is a farm deer, not a wild deer.

Dillie the Deer.

http://www.dilliedeer.com/

She has her own webcam (eastern time) and goes around on deermanitarian missions to help others.

Has been on Animal Planet and other shows.

I can't believe I never heard of her before and she's only about 45 minutes away from me.

I was watching her web cam today. What a precious doll.

Let me try to find the recent article in the Akron Beacon Journal. I think it's on the link above. I'll post a snippet.

Enjoy

Here:

It wasn’t supposed to happen like this, Butera said with a shake of her head.

“She was supposed to live in the barn, but she was afraid of the horses.” Living in the barn also meant Dillie would be separated from her first love, Heathman, who took over her care when she was three days old.

There was never any real choice. The best medical treatment couldn’t help if the deer refused to eat so Heathman took it upon himself to search until he found just the right elixir — ­­goat’s milk — that the deer soon learned to love. Heathman patiently dribbled it onto her tongue until she was strong enough to suck from a baby bottle. It meant all the difference and soon, the little fawn was on all four legs, spreading joy, climbing stairs, housebreaking herself and learning how to find treats in the most unlikely places.

I know it's late but I'll be bumping this for the animals lovers tomorrow.

I did a quick search and didn't find anything on Dillie. Sorry if it's been posted before.


It's a unique and awesome situation.

Let nature takes its course. Mother deer knows what its doing. Had a dog who has puppies, and always threw the runt out of the litter. The runt died later anyways - had a bunch of congenital birth defects.

They raise deer on farms?!? Hooray for spreading lyme disease. I'm gonna track her down using her webcam and kill her.

To be honest I didn't' know that either guest. Now you just stop that! lol

Hey they probably have "deer farms" for those brave people who like to kill things but don't want to have to do all the work involved, idk just a guess.

Yeah I know. Nature is indifferent. Doesn't meant we can't rescue them and try if it happens upon us. Two of my cats who were rejected by their mother are now both ten years old now and happy and healthy. One of them did indeed have congenital defects just like you said. Had lots of medical treatments.

But in the wild when there is no quarter, well that is different.
I do understand guest.

Mother deer will reject baby if it so much as falls into mud and doesn't smell like she's used to. Mother deer doesn't always know what's best.
