There was nothing this sad mother deer could do to save her child after it became away from her and became entombed beneath some boulders. It must have been very unsettling for her to hear her fawn screaming as people crowded around them both. However, she was unaware that the firefighters were attempting to save her baby at the time.
The first people to discover the mother deer in their yard were Eddie Bett and his wife. She was looking among the pebbles on their property border in a frenzied attempt to locate something. They walked out to the area and that’s when they heard the fawn sobbing in the rocks, after what seemed to be either falling in or crawling in through one of the crevices in the rocks. They summoned the local firefighters, and in order to liberate the fawn, the firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life.
