Reports of missing out on creatures are part of the daily routine in the life of any type of animal advocate. And the volunteers at Wild Florida Rescue in the United States are more than used to what becomes part of their trade, writes useful stories
This time, the rescue of a baby deer broke their hearts, as the little one was reluctant to approve what had actually happened.
Next to the deer was the body of his mom.
A citizen’s call notified rescue groups to the circumstance: on the side of a roadway was a scared deer hugging the lifeless body of that is assumed to be its mom.
As soon as the situation was reported to them, a team from Wild Florida Rescue showed up on the scene.
As can be interpreted from what they found, the family was wandering around the area at the time the adult doe was struck by a motorist. This person was not delicate enough to stop and left the pet lying there.
The one who might not leave the scene was certainly the faithful calf.
This deer was standing next to the body as if awaiting the mother to get up. This deeply moved the rescuers who could not help but feel indignant at the scene.
As Crystene Prokop of Wild Florida Rescue discussed, this little boy was only a few days old when his mother passed away, so he was not separated from the body.
He was reluctant to leave her.
By the time the deer was saved, it showed up dehydrated, a sign enough for the volunteers to know that the little one had been on the side of the road for about 24 hours. Thankfully, help arrived, because if not, the deer would certainly have suffered the same fatal destiny as his mom.
Life has given him a second chance.
Now, he’s under the treatment of the workers at the Creature Safe Place wildlife rehab center. At this place, they have located a surrogate mom that feeds him and helps him to progress.
Once the mammal recovers and has the energy and age to protect itself, it will return to its natural habitat, which is where it and all pets must be.
Thanks to the people who made this rescue possible, we are all pleased that the pets can have a 2nd chance. Share this by thanking these heroes for their work.
