Fawn Returned to Mother After Laying in Road

A baby deer was found lying in the middle of the road in Suffield on Tuesday and Suffield Animal Control and Suffield Police Department helped reunite the baby and mother.

After two cars drove directly over the fawn, Suffield Animal Control said they made sure she had not been injured by the vehicles, then walked the fawn down the embankment and off the road to safety.

In a Facebook post, Suffield Animal Control said, "Given this scenario, I thought it was necessary to handle this fawn to ensure her safety from the roadway."

The fawn was taken to the opposite side of the brook, where she was brought back to her mother, according to Suffield Animal Control.
