A fawn is discovered on a front porch in Pacific Grove, California. The animal is curled up on the Chang family’s welcome mat.

James, a freelance photographer, grabbed his camera and posted this incredible scene on YouTube. James said he was afraid the animal was injured so he called 911.  James says “animal control got on the phone and told me to be patient and leave it alone. That the fawn was probably resting and needed to gain strength to get up.” James adds, “It turned out to be true. The mother deer was nearby.”

James said he had to leave for work, but that about an hour later, his mother watched as the mother deer wandered over, nudged the fawn to get up.  She said the fawn stood up, started with a “newborn wobbly walk” and the pair just wandered off.
