A rare white-faced fawn has found a loving home at a Michigan animal farm after being rejected by his mother after birth, MLive.com reported. The baby deer, Dragon, is just a week and a half old and is as adorable as his name is ꜰɪᴇʀᴄᴇ.
Dragon was born at Deer Tracks Junction, an animal farm in Cedar Springs, Michigan, according to Fox 17.
The farm’s owner and the fawn’s human surrogate mom, Hilary Powell, explained to the news outlet that Dragon was abandoned by his mother, likely because he was born with a white face that would make it difficult to sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ the wild.
“In the wild, they are rate,” Powell said of Dragon’s species. The fawn’s mother, a doe named Bunny, is a whitetail Piebald deer.
One of these rare deer was born into the world only to be rejected by its mother. The little deer was small and weak, and its mother didn’t have the strength to care for it properly. It was left alone and vulnerable.
Born with white-faced, bright blue eyes and a pink nose, Dragon was ᴅɪsᴏᴡɴᴇᴅ after birth, probably because he didn’t look like the other fawns.
“Normally, they have a black nose,” Powell said to Fox 17. ”
A pink nose is a detriment in the wild because if they don’t have shade, their nose is susceptible to the sun and can get sunburn.”
But little Dragon is being cared for with lots of love now. Powell and her family will continue to feed the little guy with a bottle until he’s ready to meet farm visitors and join in on the deer games.
As the little deer grew, it became clear that it was a unique and special creature. Its white face and brown coat marked it out as one of the rarest deer in the world, and the conservationists knew they had to do everything in their power to protect it.
The story of the rarest white-faced deer in the world, rejected by its mother, finding a new life is a heartwarming tale of resilience, hope, and the power of human kindness. It’s a reminder that even in the darkest times, there is always hope and that anything is possible with little love and care.
