30 Seconds of Joy: Women Rescue Bleating Fawn Trapped in Fence

As we celebrate Thanksgiving Day here in the United States of America, those of us who love animals have so many reasons to be grateful. †Here’s a very short story that reflects the spirit of kindness that dwell inside every animal advocate. †Enjoy!

Written by†Marylin Kraker†of Michigan (USA)

It was late when we returned to our rural home after a Whitecaps baseball game, and we heard a very loud bleating, like a goat. We found a fawn with its leg twisted in the wire fence across the road. †It was one of the twins I had been watching for a couple of weeks.

My two sisters were visiting and helped hold the little fawn down while we tried to figure out how to get it loose. My partner ran to the house for wire cutters, but by the time he got back we had managed to turn the fawn so his leg came loose.

Fortunately the fawn wasn’t cut, just lost a little hair. †He ran off and I’ve seen the twins and their mother occasionally all summer afterwards. †I have such a wonderful memory of that little, warm body, safely returning to its mother.

I wonder if every person who grows up to be a hunter or animal abuser was made to hold a baby animal close to their chest, and feel it's soft, warm body and heart beating in time with their own, would they grow up any different.

It's wonderful to know, there are still special, kind and humbled people in the world such as the lovely people that helped this fawn. God saw what you did and he will bless you for your kind deed if not now, somewhere down the road and all the animal lovers such as myself can't thank you enough.
