A Baby Deer Became Trapped Under Rocks But its Mother Wouldn’t Give Up


On a Morning in May my Eddie Bett and his wife noticed a deer in their yard that appeared to be frantically looking for something in the rocks that form a wall on their property. When they first went out with their neighbours, they couldn’t see anything that seemed odd, but the deer just wouldn’t leave the yard. The proceeded to go back to their house and but as they watched, sure enough, the deer came back.

The video is at the foot of this article, If you don’t want to ruin the story you can scroll down now and watch it.

We’ll let Eddie the property owner take the story from here; “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 baby fawn’s face beneath the rocks. He had apparently fallen in or crawled in through 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 tiny baby deer.”

“We decided to call the fire brigade,” said Eddie. “The B Shift team came out and they were able to move the larger rocks out of the way with the Jaws of Life. They moved them just enough to be able to reach in a pull the baby fawn out and reunited it with its mother. The fawn was probably stuck in there most of the night quickly went on to nurse off its mother. 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 friend they thought that it was just too cute not to share with more people so my neighbor agreed to let me upload the final clip.”
