HARTFORD, Conn. — Police in Connecticut have come to the rescue of a baby deer whose mother died.
Hartford police say a resident told them she found the fawn on the highway Sunday next to its mother, which had died after being hit by a car. The resident brought the fawn to the front door of the Hartford Police Department.
Images of the encounter show the fawn curled up in the back of a squad car and being held by officers.
Police say they turned the deer over to the state's environmental department, which brought it to a rescue farm.
