Fawn dies after Amado man takes it home, AZGFD says

TUCSON (KVOA) - A fawn has died after being taken home by an Amado man, Arizona Game and Fish Department said Tuesday.

Wildlife officials say the man thought the fawn looked "thin".

"Had he returned it to where found as advised, the fawn likely would have survived in its mother's care," AZGFD wrote in a tweet.

They urge people to leave baby wildlife alone.
