SPCA officials on Long Island are asking the public to be on the lookout for a baby deer after a mother deer was found dead outside a home Wednesday.
Suffolk County SPCA says a Shoreham resident contacted them about a female deer that died on their property after giving birth to baby fawns on Jody Court a few days before.
One of the fawns was found and captured by volunteers in Smithtown.
A whitetail normally gives birth to twins but triplets are also a possibility.
If anyone in the area sees a lone baby fawn, they're asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA at 631-382-7722 or the Sweetbriar Nature Center at 631-979-6344.
