Goner Message Board / ???? / Me & Goner Rhea and Betsy saved a FREAKIN BABY DEER TONIGHT!
Posted: Jun 1, 2008 11:45 pm
OMG! me and Betsy and Sarah were ridin around the country today and were comin back and on the way saw an animal in the road that was still alive...so we turned around and it was a baby deer! It must've just been hit cause all it had was a broken leg and a little blood from it's nose. It was about twice the size of a chiwawa dog. So we got the fawn off the side of the road and called the police. Who (of course) never showed up. On the 2nd call to the police, they told us there was no one available at that time(?) and we should take it home OURselveS! So we took it to our friend Chris's house where he made a splint and then back to betsy's house. We got it some warm goats milk and it seems pretty freaked out but is ok and should be fine.
All the animal shelters were closed . Thats where she will take it tomorrow.

My god I'm tired!--------------mike

Super cute pics!

I was all prepared to go "you guys are dumbasses" but I saw those pictures.

That's not so good news about "finding the mother" but maybe it'll work out.
Deer are not good pets. They eat everything you plant, and are surprisingly unruly for their size. They ain't no cows or horses.

But those were damned cute pics. And y'all did a good job.

what do you get when you cross a deer and a bear?

a beer!

my friend betsy took her to the game commission (not my idea) so we don't know what they did with her. the game commission told betsy they would try to reunite it with its mother or send her to a wildlife rehabilitation place.

check this out, it's wagging its tail!

this is the most heart warming thread EVER on the Goner Board!

Deer are quail with tails, rats with hooves, wild animals that are in no way endangered. Those deer crossing signs aren't put up to save the deer, they're put up to save the people driving in deer infested areas. The most common cause of death for eastern deer is starvation.

I suppose I'm in a mood.
I got stuck behind some hippie type morons driving an oil-burning car throwing cigarette butts out the window. But at least they were sporting a "we belong to the earth" bumper sticker while driving in the wrong lane.
