Fawn Rescue and Asta's Birthday

One morning there was a deer in a yard frantically looking for something in a pile of rocks that form a wall on the property line. When the owners first went out, they didn't see anything but the deer wouldn't leave the yard.

Later they went out to the area the deer was concentrating on and heard a fawn crying. They moved some large rocks and saw the fawn was trapped. The large boulders were too heavy to move.

They called the fire department and a team came out and moved the rocks with the Jaws of Life, then reached in and pulled out the fawn.

This is a neat video and we'd like to send  kudos to the B Shift team of the Clark County Fire District 3 for reuniting the fawn with its mother.

Today is Asta's 5th birthday.  We are trying to get to the party on time with some friends but we're stuck in a taxicab traffic jam.

We hope this traffic jam clears up soon. Buddy says he's tired of climbing in and out of the cab to pee.

Don't miss Asta's 5th birthday party.  She's having a commentathon and will donate 50 cents a comment. She will draw a winner's name from the comments who will get to pick which rescue/shelter will receive her donation. 

Just a reminder that Gracie's mom has sinusitis and pneumonia in one lung and can use your prayers.  Despite her illness, she worked on the above graphic for Asta's party..


  1. Videos like this make us remember how many wonderful humans there are who do so much to help animals.

  2. This video brought tears to the mom's eyes. How nice to see a good outcome. God bless those firefighters for saving the little fawn. I bet the fawn and the mom were terribied. Thanks for posting.

  3. We saw that video a few weeks ago - amazing, wasn't it? And it was wonderful to see the mother stick around for her baby to be free.

    Great work by some wonderful humans.

  9. Oh...that was so sweet. It looked as if the momma deer looked back at the camera like she was saying thank you.

    Better get started for Asta's pawty now or I might be too late for the cake and ice cream. Where is alien's spaceship when I need it?

  16. so delighted and happy to see them reunited - 3 CHEERS for those who helped! Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  17. I'm finally here! My human is helping me do this comment using her new software that types for her as she speaks, so she can rest her arms from her RSI – it's not bad,huh? But it does still make mistakes and my human has to keep stopping to correct it so it's a bit annoying and very slow – it takes us double the time to do the same thing! So please excuse any funny words or spellings in my comment!

    What a great rescue! That fawn was so lucky – how nice to be reunited with its mother. And poor Gracie's human – were thinking of them and I'm sending lots of healing slobbers,.
