​A deer has been injured, can it be helped?

If you have found an injured deer fawn, call our Provincial Call Centre at 1-855-622-7722. They will help you assess the animal and find a wildlife rehabilitator.

Unfortunately, wildlife rehabilitators can’t often help injured adult deer, as they are too high-stress to keep in a captive setting. Even when injured, they can be very dangerous because of their size and strength. If you can approach an injured adult deer and they don’t run away, they are likely too badly injured to survive.

Call your local RCMP or Conservation Officer Service to humanely euthanize an injured adult deer.
