Fawn rescue

For the animal lovers, found this beautiful video about a fawn's rescue and about mother love:

On the Morning of 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 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 baby fawn's face in the rocks. He had apparently fallen in our 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 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 a pull the baby fawn out and reunited it with its momma. The fawn was probably stuck in their most of the night quickly went on 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 friend they thought that it was just too cute not to share with more people so my neighbor agreed to let me upload the final clip.
