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 aand pull the baby fawn out and reunited it with its momma. The fawn was probably stuck in there most of the night and quickly went to nurse off its momma.
This lost, scared and fumbling deer was caught as she was heading out to sea. She was scared by a tiger and took to the water. These fisherman picked her up, hauled her in and took her back to the safety of the shore.
