    Got this in an email. LOL

    May my wife noticed a female deer in our yard that appeared to be 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 doe wouldn't leave our yard.

    We went back to our house and watched and, 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 from inside the rock pile. We moved some of the rocks and smaller boulders and saw fawn's face in the rocks. It 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 baby deer.

    We finally called our 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 to pull the fawn out and get reunited with its momma. The fawn was probably stuck in there most of the night and, after its rescue, it quickly went to nurse off its momma.

    Here is the video of the rescue. Enjoy!!
