Heroic Deer Rescue (Includes Video)


One morning this past May, a resident of Bush Prairie, Washington noticed something strange happening outside– a deer wasn’t leaving his yard and she seemed to be frantically concentrating on the rocks and boulders that form a wall along the property line.

When he and his neighbors went out to investigate, they heard the sounds of a fawn crying. The poor creature had somehow gotten itself trapped in the gaps of the rocks.

But luckily, the local fire department came to the rescue! After moving the heavy boulders out of the way with Jaws of Life, the fawn was reunited with its mother!

Watch this video of the Clark County fire department’s heroic rescue of the fawn:
