Chanticleer Inn: a deer nursery!
It’s fawning time in Ashland. A doe left a fawn at the front door — literally on the Chanticleer Inn B&B’s porch.
Mother deer will leave the fawns in order to browse and feed, and will later return to them.
Most of the time, the fawn is safely sequestered in tall grass or under a bush. Being so new fawns have no scent for predators to catch a whiff of, and the spots help camouflage the baby. The deer in Ashland are so accustomed to humans, they leave them on sidewalks, in alleys, and now apparently at front doors.
