Mankind & Animal World Unite for a Rescue

One of the Beaches, Deception Pass, Washington State

I missed the ‘internet bus’ last evening and didn’t get a post scheduled for 6 AM Wednesday, but my heart is with you all regardless.  This will be a hasty post, coming through in a rush as a busy day lies ahead.  Hope your Wednesday is great, whether it is to pause to take a deep breath and admire your surroundings, (thanks … I’ll take one myself!) or to accomplish something that’s been waving at you from your do list for a while, or to tread water and maintain motivation for a difficult task.  Sending out all the positive energy I can muster.

A friend forwarded this home video from last May, and I hope you’ll enjoy it.  Any comments?

Here is the blurb that goes with it:

“On 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 reunited 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.”

Sorry, couldn’t imbed this one …  here is the URL:>
