According to Hartford police, a concerned motorist gave them a call to report that a fawn was standing beside its mother next to a busy highway. Sadly, the mother deer had been struck by a car, but the fawn stood by its mother’s side.
The motorist took the fawn to the front door of the Hartford police department, where officers began caring for what they called their “little buddy”. Officials from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) were also called to assist with care for the fawn.
Hartford police report that the fawn is doing well, and has been placed at a rescue farm.
