Tony Morse first spotted the fawn and its mother running through his backyard.
He watched as the mother went into the woods but, the fawn decided to jumped into the water. Although the fawn could swim at first, she started to struggle to stay above water and couldn't find her way out of the lake. Morse quickly realized the fawn was in trouble so he ran to the shore and pulled the fawn to safety.
After his rescue Tony could hear the mother deer calling for its newborn from the woods and seeing the fawn was now safe, Tony walked the fawn from the lake to the edge of the woods and left her there hoping that, in his absence, the mother deer would come out for her baby. As for the fawn it had other ideas.
The fawn refused to leave Tony's after he saved her and from that point on, the newborn stayed right by his side. After a lot of coaxing and pictures LOL Tony finally got the fawn to stay by the woods edge.
When Morse returned, the fawn was gone but there were deer tracks in the area, leading him to believe the mother and newborn were reunited.
Here are some of the pictures taken from Tony's rescue. From Wildlife Planet we can only say thank you Tony for being such a great person to the wildlife and you'll always and forever be a hero in our book.
