heartwarming story

I just received this from a member of our local wildlife rescue group.

How’s this for a rescue!

On
the morning of May 18, 2011, my wife noticed a deer in our yard that appeared to
be

frantically
looking for something in the rocks that form a wall on our property line in
Brush Prairie, WA.


When we first went out with our neighbors, we
didn’t see anything, but the deer wouldn’t leave
our yard. We
went back to our house and watched; after a few minutes the deer came
back.

We went out to the area the deer was concentrating on and could
hear a baby fawn crying in the rocks. We moved some of the rocks and smaller
boulders and saw a baby fawn’s face in the rocks. He had apparently fallen in
one of the gaps and was now trapped. The larger boulders were too
heavy to move, and we didn’t want the rocks cave in on the baby
deer.


We called our Clark
County Fire District 3.
The B Shift team came out; they were
able to move the larger rocks out of the way with the Jaws of Life enough to be
able to reach in a pull the baby fawn out and reunite it with its
momma. The fawn, maybe stuck in there most of the night, quickly went to nurse
its momma.


One of our neighbors took some video clips of the
fire department’s rescue. I edited the clips into this short clip. After sharing
it with some friends they thought that it was just too cute not to share with
more people;
my neighbor agreed to let me upload
it.
