Stanley Sliwinski, commander of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Sustainment Brigade, as he presided over the ceremony.

Fort Campbell, Do not touch or remove Fawns from Habitat

 

Written by Sgt. Patrick Kirby
40th Public Affairs Detachment

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell,  KY – It is the season for fawns here on Fort Campbell, as does typically give birth in May and June.

The deer population on Fort Campbell is very dense, especially in the housing areas where hunting is not allowed.

When a doe gives birth its first instinct is to protect the fawn. The doe feeds her young every two to three hours.

Whenever the doe is out in the open with her fawn, the fawn is in danger of attacks from predators. Because she must continue to forage for food, she hides her fawns somewhere safe. Here on Fort Campbell that safe spot often is somewhere near houses in a flower bed or yard.

A rescued fawn prances around its enclosure Tuesday in Greenville, KY. A fawn that is removed from its safe hiding spot or is handled by humans are often abandoned because the doe cannot find it. (Sgt. Patrick Kirby, 40th Public Affairs Detachment)
