100

Doe 100, found dead on September 10, 2016, no apparent cause.  Later the cause was determined to be a hemorrhagic disease such as blue tongue, bitten by gnats.  The fawn was on its own.  The fawn was seen with Doe 11, cleaning the fawn. The fawn has been sighted two times recently, during the deer count at the end of October and also on November 6.  The fawn continues into 2018 as a young buck that spends much of his time outside the Villages.

Records indicate that Doe 100 had an ovariectomie when less than a year old.  She is right next in order to does that had tubal ligation. As reported in the Washington Post:  “Three of the 77 tubal ligation deer gave birth to fawns,”  Ovariectomie may not be effective if all tissue is not removed. 

Below is the first sighting of Doe 100's fawn on August 4, born late in the season, around July.

Coyote seen several times hunting this location.  Doe 100 has never seen a fawn or how other does take care of their fawn, but she is doing standard procedures to evade a predator.  Putting the fawn in different safe places, not moving the fawn much when very young.
