Quick thinking saved this fawn’s life.
An Oklahoma Game Warden had to act fast Sunday night to save a fawn’s life in Osage County.
The Wardens posted about the crazy rescue on their Facebook page.
It all started when a doe gave birth on the side of the road. After dropping one fawn, the doe attempted to cross a road, but was struck by a vehicle. Unfortunately, the doe died, prompting a call to Warden Ryan Walker.
According to the post, he arrived and found the deceased doe and a deceased fawn, but noticed movement from another fawn inside the mother’s stomach. He quickly performed a cesarean section and was able to save the second fawn.
“Within seconds, the newborn fawn was out and breathing on its own,” the post reads.
The authorities then took the fawn to a wildlife rehabilitation clinic, where it’ll hopefully have a chance to survive.
Believe it or not, this is the second time this year we’ve seen a fawn rescue like this, as it happened in New Jersey last month.
Good work, Warden Walker!
