PORTAGE -- There now are two orphaned newborn Sitka black-tailed deer at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage.
Spokesman Ethan Tyler says the new addition is named Leia. The fawn was found near the Ketchikan coast after it was discovered she was unable to follow her twin and mother across a waterway.
The fawn was just 6 weeks old when rescued by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and her strength was dwindling.
Tyler says the fawn gained strength and has fit right in with the center's other orphaned fawn, Solo, which arrived just over a month ago. The two have been placed with Jewelie, an 8-year-old Sitka black-tailed deer.
The center hopes to one day put the three on exhibit together.
