WESTON - A baby deer is recovering after it was taken to a wildlife center in Weston following the death of its mother last week.

The deer was found by Metro-North workers wandering the tracks after a passing train killed its mother.

The fawn was taken to the Wildlife in Crisis Center in Weston where workers have been caring for it.

The workers say the fawn was in a state of shock when it first came in but has slowly become more comfortable in its new home.

The center says it will release the deer back into the wild once it is ready. They expect that will be sometime in September.
