Rescue of another kind

This will make you smile all day :D ... Ne1--idns0

" On the Morning of May 18th 2011, my wife noticed a deer in our yard that appeared to be franticly 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 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 reach in and pull the baby fawn out and reunite it with its momma. The fawn was probably stuck in there most of the night and quickly went to nurse off 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 so my neighbors agreed to let me upload the final clip."

Someone just sent this to me and it's amazing to watch that doe pacing back and forth waiting for her baby to be rescued. The little thing didn't seem any worse for wear - amazing!
