A baby fawn captured the attention of golfers at The River Club golf course April 19.

The fawn rested all day beneath trees along a lake behind the golf club, before it disappeared around 4 p.m. Golfer Noel Pressler made sure to snap this cute picture with her phone.

The fawn reappeared April 20, and wildlife rehabilitator Justin Matthews, of Justin Matthews Wildlife Rescue, took the young deer into his care.

Based on the fawn’s condition, it has been abandoned by its mother, Matthews said.

“She’s been separated (from her mother) for a while,” he said. “She’s skin and bones.”

Once the fawn’s health improves sufficiently, Matthews said he would take it to a wildlife center in Venice for further care and rehabilitation.
