We bet Officer Matthew Mitchell of the Columbus City Police Department has seen some crazy things in his line of work…but we can’t imagine any have been as cute as what he came across earlier this month.
Presumably, when this baby deer and her mom were crossing the road, the mother got ahead and the tiny fawn became confused. After she lost her momma in the shuffle, she simply lay down in the middle of the road.
As she was driving by, Rebecca Wagner saw the poor baby and jumped into action. Not only did she direct traffic around her, she also called the police for help. This is the moment when Officer Mitchell showed up and saved the day!
Right afterward, the officer put the fawn down in a place where her mom could see her. He assured Wagner that she’d return to claim the baby when the coast was clear.
What a happy ending!
