Being a mother can be stressful, no matter the species. For deer, fawns can walk at birth and are almost scentless, which greatly helps in avoiding predators. However, raising one can still be a handful. Raising four, well, takes a lot of dedication.

A trail camera at the right place and right time captured this nursing doe feeding one of her fawns. Their quiet bonding time is quickly interrupted by her other offspring, who rush in and jostle for position as they try to feed, obviously overwhelming their mother.

If it’s any consolation for the doe, at least she only has to put up with her fawns for another year or so until they move out—and she also won’t have to pay for college.
