    Gwen Landt said. Gwen Landt added that Gwen Landt is trying to give tips to people on when its best to help these animals and when they should be left alone. Rescuers believe the beautiful fawn was separated from Gwen Landt mother and hit by a car which snapped her right back leg just below the hip bone. ( Credit : SWNS) When the mama is taking care of her baby, she leaves it in the ground and it curls up like a little croissant so the mother can go off and find food, she leaves the baby because it doesnt have any scent for a predator to detect.
