What would you do if a tiny little deer came up to you in the middle of nowhere and started licking your ankle? This woman was as lost about it as we would have been. The last thing that we or she would have wanted to do was rescue the deer while taking it away from its mother and natural habitat. 

So, after a while of staying in the area with nothing to give the little guy, the woman left. But her thoughts stayed with the little deer, unable to stop worrying about it, so that night, she went back to see if it was still alone or if its mother had taken it back, and the deer was right there, waiting. Thank god that she did what she did, since, after taking it Turner's Deer Camp Fawn Rescue, they found out that the deer was no more than a few days old and that it almost didn't make it multiple times. 

It's a happy ending story where the lovely deer is now doing much better. It'll stay in the rescue for a while and then be released into the wild to live on its own, and this is exactly the kind of positive news we are so happy to hear today.

Take about good people! In Tyler, Texas, two beautiful souls saved a baby deer drowning at Lake Tyler. 

Brian Ballard, and his wife, stumbled upon the poor fawn living lifeless in the water. 

"We are pulling into the channel which is no wake I saw something in the water I thought it was a dead fish. I pull beside it and looked over and saw it was a deer," Ballard told KETK News.

When another person, Ashton Byrd, saw what Ballard was doing, he also sprang into action!  

"If you would have seen it it was clearly dead but it had life in its eyes so I killed the boat and took off my shirt and jumped over to their boat," said Ashton Byrd. "They had been patting it, giving it breaths so it started to crying itself back to life."

Ballard and Byrd, both took turns giving the fawn CPR until suddenly, he came back to life. Local wildlife rehabilitator who is caring for the fawn, now named Baylade, says he is getting stronger and stronger every hour. 

A huge thank you to Ballard and Byrd for your kindness and never giving up on this fawn. You both are heroes.

Truck Driver Rescues A Rare Albino Fawn From The Middle Of The Road

A truck driver was driving through the rice fields of Yolo County, Sacramento, when he came across a white mound in the middle of the road. Quickly swerving to avoid hitting it, he continued on for a split second until he saw another truck behind him swerve as well. The truck driver decided to turn around and investigate but was confused as to what the white mound was, upon closer inspection.  

As first, he thought it was a lamb or maybe some type of goat, but he heard it mew, like a cat. He called up Kindred Spirits Fawn Rescue center and sent the center's President, Diane Nicholas, a photo of the animal. 

Nicholas told LA Times, "He said, 'I don't know what I've got, I said, 'Oh, my gosh, that's an albino fawn!'"

An Amazing video that was uploaded by Mark Freeley, shows his dog saving a baby deer from drowning. He Said that as he was walking his two dogs in the morning, Storm and Sara, he noticed a fawn in the water struggling to get to shore. The next thing he knew "Storm just plunged into the water and started swimming out to the fawn, grabbed it by the neck and started swimming back to shore."

It can be shown in the video, that once Storm hit the shore, he put the deer down and laid down next to it. The very prod owner was even surprised by the good deed his dog had done. 

Unfortunately, when experts arrived and with the commotion of the dogs and so many people, the poor deer got spooked again and ran back into the water. This time further out. After struggling for around 8 minutes, the men were able to rescue her once again. The fawn didn't have any serious injuries but did suffer from ticks and a small eye injury. The young animal is currently being cared for at an area wildlife agency until it is in better shape. 

Freeley posted the video of Storm's heroic rescue on Facebook Sunday morning and had already had more than 13k likes and just over 61k shares.
