Yesterday on our morning bike ride along the flumes, we encountered a fawn that had fallen in the rushing waters.
The sides of the flume are steep, and opportunities to escape are few and far between.
Greg jumped in while I held the camera. In spite of the freezing water with an unstable rocky surface at the bottom, he was able, after a couple of attempts to get close enough to the fawn to lift them out onto the bank. We could hear the mother snorting in distress up the hillside.
We didn’t get to see the reunion, as the brush is so dense, but no doubt they found each other quickly to complete this happy ending!
In these days of so much stress and bad news for the animals in the press, it is heartening to see real life rescues taking place, don’t you think?
Wow! Good work Greg. Such a relief to see the fawn on solid ground
Diane, thank you for jumping in to say hi! Relief is right…you can hear me in the video, I don’t even remember saying “hurry, hurry!” and my sighs of relief at the moment Greg releases the fawn to the bank are pretty apparent!
Thank you for the video.
Oh thank you both for reuniting this mother & child! Great job!!!
Hi Linda! Your reflections are so appreciated! I am glad you enjoyed the video.
Oh, I just cried watching this! Well done! I’m so grateful it was a happy ending!! 🙂
HI Laurie, it’s a tear jerker, isn’t it? You aren’t the only one! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Thank you for being such good people!
