Bears, beaver, deer and other wildlife are active this time of year in parts of Minnesota, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The DNR urges people to leave fawns and other wildlife alone. Jeff Lightfoot, DNR Northeast Region wildlife manager, offers tips for dealing with nuisance wildlife. A doe's method of rearing off- spring is different from a human's, especially for the first few weeks. Within hours of its birth, the fawn is led to a secluded spot and the doe lets it nurse. With a full stomach, the fawn is content to lie down and rest. If the doe has twins, it will hide the second fawn up to 200 feet away. Then the doe leaves to feed and rest herself, out of sight but within earshot. In four or five hours, she will return to feed her young and take them to a new hiding place. They follow this pattern for two to three weeks, and only then, when the fawns are strong enough to outrun predators, do the young travel much with their mother. Deer have evolved a number of special adaptations that make this approach to fawn rearing successful. Fawns have almost no odor, so preda- tors cannot smell them. Their white spotted coats provide excellent cam- ouflage when they are lying on the forest floor. For the first week of life, frightened fawns' instinctively freeze, making full use of their protective coloration. Older fawns remain motionless until they think they have been discovered, and then jump and bound away. A deer's primary protec- tion from predators is its great speed. Newborn fawns are not fast enough to outdistance predators, so they must depend on their ability to hide for pro- tection. Although these adaptations work well against predators, they don't work very well with people. For the first few weeks, a fawn's curiosity may entice it to approach a person The Ortonville Rex traveled to beat out for a hit to load the bases.

It was a real good effort on our part. We had one bad inning on defense and Matt Fellows came up with a diving stop at third and threw the runner out at first to end the inning," stated Rex manager Ron Thomas. The Sunday, June 21 game with Madison was rained out and will be made up on Friday night, July 10 at 8:00 p.m. This week, the Rex travel to Milbank on Friday night for an 8:00 p.m. game and then on Saturday, send Joe Fuller, Riley Sammon, Curt Schake and John Thomas to Rosen to participate in the all-star game with Chance Haugen taking part in the home run contest. It should be a good time in Milbank on Friday night as they get ready for their annual festival. The all-star game, played in Rosen at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, pitting the Teal League against the Wood League should provide some real good base- ball entertainment. GOING THE DISTANCE FOR THE Rox in their 12-2 win last Saturday against Prior Lake played in Rosen is Rox starter Chris Fellows. Fellows went six innings allowing two runs, six hits and struck out nine. The Rox will travel to Milbank this Friday night to battle the Firechiefs beginning at 8 p.m. Area students graduate NSU Minnesota students were among 1,300 to graduate from North Dakota State University in Spring of 2009.
