Mule Deer Doe With Fawn Yellowstone National Park

A Mule Deer doe stands alert over her new born fawn in the wilderness of Yellowstone National Park in the USA.

With her large ears standing erect, a Mule Deer doe is immediately on alert when she hears noises in the wilderness of Yellowstone National Park. Her fawn is only 10 minutes old, fully able to stand after birth and the Mule Deer doe will do all she can to protect her baby from any harm. The worst predators the Mule Deer must fear are cougars, bear, bobcats, coyote, eagles, wolves and humans.

The doe has carried her fawn for a gestation period of about 190-200 days and will nurse her young until it reaches about 60-75 days old. The coat on the fawn is spotted white as a means of camouflage, eventually changing to a light brown coloring as it matures.

As spring moves into Yellowstone National Park, baby animals are born throughout the area which keeps the circle of life intact. While visiting the amazing wildlife in Yellowstone National Park, abide by all the rules to ensure the safety of the animals and yourselves.
