Greetings, this is from an email about a pretty nice rescue. Enjoy.
On the morning of May 18th, 2011, my wife noticed a deer in our yard that
appeared to be 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
We went out to the area the deer was concentrating on and could hear a
baby fawn cryingt in the rocks. We moved some of the rocks and smaller
boulders and saw a baby fawn's face among the rocks. He had apparently
fallen into a crawl-through in one of the gaps and was now trapped. The
larger boulders were too heavy to move and we didn't want to have the
rocks cave in on the baby deer.
We finally called our Clark County Fire District 3. The B shift team came
out and they were able to move the larger rocks out of the way with the
Jaws Of Life; enough to be able to be able to reach in and pull the baby
fawn out and reunited it with it's momma. The fawn was probably stuck
in there most of the night and quickly went off to nurse off it's momma.
One of our neignbors 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 it was just too cute not to share it with more people. So my
neighbors agreed to let me upload the final clip.
Peachy, Yes there are still a lot of good people around yet and from things I've
seen here on Tnet since I first started, I believe that you are involved in animal
rescue and stuff like that. For that I commend you.
And here's another cup of hot chocolate, or coffee for your efforts.
I'm very very surprised that the Momma deer didnt attack any people when the baby was crying! First thing I would of done was get them women and children out of there before attempting anything (knowing that the Mom was around). They can become very agressive, especially when a fawn is around! Thankyou fireman and aides for the rescue! You guys rock!
