A baby deer was found by hikers a week ago in Parnitha National Park. Its mother must have been scared by the crowd, while the hikers considered it orphaned and exhausted (because as a newborn it could not stand on its own feet) and thus arrived at ANIMA by the forestry commission. Once again we need to emphasize that when mammalian babies are found sleeping quietly in the forest and are not visibly injured, WE DO NOT INTERVENE. We move away not to disturb, because usually the mother is somewhere nearby.

These days at our station we also host a baby fox bitten by dogs and a baby wild boar from Konitsa that was injured during a landslide.

All three babies are females.
