    The Rescue



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

    That mother and fawn must have been terrified at all that noise. But what a happy reunion! Thanks for sharing.

    That's such a great video. The noise from the generator must have really terrified both the mom and the baby fawn.
