Deer are famous for "freezing" in the headlight beams of oncoming cars, but for a doe on a rural Michigan highway, there were not only headlights but a mild collision with a car that left it frozen with fear in the middle of the road. WATCH VIDEO

Thank you for a story that should be the norm with our service men and women in blue! This story in no way balances the cop who used his tazzer repeadedly on a petrified squirrel~

Great video! It is so sweet to watch the officer take such great care with this very frightened deer. He was gentle and calm with it and so touching to see the deer scamper off after the rescue and their 'goodbye'. It will stay in that officers heart forever, I'm sure. He experienced something few do, and will have a beautiful story to tell his children and grand-children.
