SHELBURNE (CBS) – A pair of Massachusetts State Police troopers rescued a baby deer that was attempting to cross a Shelburne highway.
Sgt. Brian Gladu and Trooper Sean LeBlanc found the fawn struggling to cross Route 2 on Wednesday morning.
“The animal appeared injured, or might have just been having trouble adjusting to its new legs, as it appeared to be only a few weeks old,” State Police said in a Facebook post.
The troopers placed the fawn in their cruiser while they consulted with a local veterinarian.
After providing the animal with some food, troopers released it into a safe area nearby.
