ARMONK, N.Y. -- A report of an injured fawn brought North Castle police to a Stone Hedge Circle residence last Saturday.
A resident there was concerned for the tiny animal’s safety.
Police arrived around 7:15 p.m. and determined the baby deer had not been injured and gave the homeowners a phone number for a private service should they want it removed.
Shortly afterwards, police got another call about an injured fawn, this time from someone on Limestone Road.
The police officer again determined the fawn was fine and its mother was nearby.
According to fawnrescue.org, fawns should not be touched or moved unless they are obviously ill, injured or in a dangerous spot, such as the middle of a road.
Mama deer usually leave their fawns in safe spots while they travel around looking for food.
While waiting for her return, the baby assumes a “camouflage” position of lying upright, with eyes open, and flattened to the ground, the organization said.

Meanwhile, back in the wild kingdom, police were called early Saturday by security staff at the Swiss Re property on King Street, who said they had detained several alleged turkey hunters on their property.
Police said they spoke to the people involved and determined no further action was required.
On Tuesday, police had to handle a complaint from a distraught driver who said she had a run-in with a bicyclist on School Street.
The woman told police she was exiting Glendale Avenue when she encountered the bike rider.
She had had trouble seeing through some bushes, she told police, and when she pulled out, the bicyclist was near.
The man, apparently startled and angry, called her several names and took off, the woman told police.
He was described as wearing a bright pink top, black pants and a helmet.
He was long gone by the time police responded to the scene.
