A fawn tries to blend in to avoid being seen while napping near Chromo recently. Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds residents and visitors to be wary of mother deer and fawns this time of year. They are very protective when their fawns are vulnerable to predators or other perceived threats. Do not approach a fawn, and never pick one up. Does often stash their youngsters while they’re off feeding, but they do not abandon fawns.
