TRENTON, N.J. — A crying baby deer has been rescued by two New Jersey animal control officers, who pulled her out of the hole that trapped her and separated her from her parent.
Officers Joe Antonella and Jose Munoz say they responded to a Tuesday call in Trenton reporting a crying deer, finding the baby deer trapped in a hole.
NJ.com reports (http://bit.ly/2pVaVvH ) a local homeowner had seen an adult deer with a baby deer on Saturday, but on Tuesday the adult was nowhere in sight.
Antonella says they helped the baby out of the hole, taking a picture with the baby deer and posting it to Facebook.
The officers took the baby deer to a local wildlife center, where she will be cared for until she’s released back into the wild.
