Oh deer! Lit­tle fawn gets licked into shape

Irish Daily Mail - - News - By Naomi McEl­roy

IT was a case of, ‘Doe! My ear!’ for this lit­tle fawn when her mother de­cided to give her an im­promptu clean-up in Dublin’s Phoenix Park yes­ter­day.

The mother and baby fal­low deer were snapped soak­ing up the sun­shine in the cap­i­tal as tem­per­a­tures soared to the high 20s.

Mum was ob­vi­ously very fawn’d of her lit­tle one, and de­cided to make the most of the sum­mer sun by giv­ing her a quick spring clean.

We’ve all en­dured the dreaded mamf ace wipe, where clean­li­nes­sob­sessed mother slick at is­sue then use it to scrub their protest­ing chil­dren’s faces, but this un­for­tu­nate young­ster had it even worse.

It didn’t seem to bother her too much, though, as she was spot­ted play­ing hap­pily in the sun­shine shortly af­ter­wards.

Fal­low deer have lived in the park since the 17th cen­tury.
