Triplet Fawns Rescued

At 06:26 we received word from Santa Cruz 911 Dispatch, referring us a call about three fawns that had been found in Aptos. A young man, James, had noticed the triplets lying on the fog line of the road. He stopped and helped them get up a bank and into some tall grass, but they were still close to passing traffic. Duane responded and helped them get deeper into the brush - managing a nearby deer trail into a clearing where the mother could be seen through thick tangles of foliage. Here's a link to the video.

Just a reminder to leave healthy baby wild animals in the care of their parents. When in doubt, call wildlife rescue experts, like WildRescue, for advice.
