The fawn wouldn't eat or stand last nightt. They are calling the fawn "Bambi", but have a goal of returning him to the wild someday Jamie Harrison was able to get the fawn to take a bottle today after research was done to see what kind of formula to use. There are 80-100 homes that are estimated to have burned in the Black Forest Fire in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Jerilee Bennett/The Gazette)
