fawn

Here is my best explanation:

'animal' is the definition.

'enthusiast out west' is the subsidiary indication.
'enthusiast' becomes 'fan' (fan is a kind of enthusiast).
'out' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'west' becomes 'w' ('W' can be a synonym of 'west').
'fan' enclosing 'w' is 'fawn'.
