Deer is too domesticated, now what?

Rescued a doe fawn from roadside in June. She was covered in afterbirth. Bottle raised her. When she was old enough to eat solid foods, we took her to our property where we are going to build some day. It's a small community with large 4 to 20 acre lots...very wooded. We would let her out during the day and pen her up at night. She mostly stayed within a couple hundred yards. Our neighbor helped with the feeding and putting her up at night. We tried to keep her a secret, only let a few people meet her. Our neighbor however has much more traffic than we ever thought. The fawn was greeted by many strangers and has become quite tame. This wasn't much of an issue until recent. She is now straying farther and farther. We hear that she has gone to the school which is about a mile away and has introduced herself to the children and allows them to pet her. Also heard that she has followed runners and will not leave them...they had to get into a vehicle to shake her.

Obviously this is not good! Is there anything we can do to keep her out of harms way?

Hate to sound so harsh but you created this mess. Every single year people do this crap. You did her no favors at all. Just be glad it wasn't a buck fawn because he would kill someone in fall during the rut.
