Lost Fawn

Here's a bittersweet story that highlights some of the unusual (and occasionally melancholy) responsibilities of the Maine Warden Service. Travis Barrett from Inland Tracks has the details:

Essentially, a group of contractors were working near Bangor last Friday when they found a deer fawn that didn’t want to leave the danger-zone of a highway. Not far from the fawn, the workers found the fawn’s mother — which had been killed in an apparent collision with a car. The men contacted Warden Jim Fahey, brought the fawn with them (inside their truck!) to IF&W headquarters in Bangor, and Warden Eric Rudolph collected the fawn and drove it to a rehabilitation center in Mount Desert Island.

Here's hoping the fawn can be released into the wild again, ideally in a place with fewer roads.
