Rescued One-Week-Old Fawn Finds Deer Friend

A second newborn roe deer fawn was found in a bush near a farm in the Kompoti area, Arta, on Wednesday and was immediately taken to the Arcturos wildlife shelter in Florina.

Its rescuers named it ‘Mata’ and it will keep company with ‘Thomas’, another newborn baby deer that was brought to the  Arcturos sanctuary on Monday.

The two animals will remain at the organization’s veterinary clinic at Agrapidies, Florina, for a few weeks until their reintegration back into the wild sometime next year.

Thomas had been found with a broken leg by hunters on Mount Paiko and was treated immediately, as its chances of survival in the woods with such injuries were less than slim.
