BRYANT, AR – The Saline County Sheriff’s Office rescues an injured fawn.
On Wednesday (June 17), Deputy Jack Campbell was called to an address on Worth Ave. in Bryant.
A small fawn was found to be tangled in a chain link fence. The homeowners had removed the deer from the fence but it was unresponsive.
Campbell suspected the deer was in shock. It was wrapped in a blanket and taken to his home where it was hydrated and began to show signs of strengthening.
The fawn regained its composure but was unable to support its weight until the following day. Once the deer could walk, it was transported to a farm in Saline County.
The deer is currently being nursed back to health and is being fed goat milk from a baby’s bottle. It is anticipated that the fawn will not be strong enough to be released into the wild for several months.
