Fawn rescued

This comes from my fellow Humbled Herd-er Terri. It came without any author attribution but there is video at the end. Here's what the person wrote:

"On the morning of May 18th, 2011, my wife noticed a deer in our yard that appeared to be frantically looking for something in the rocks that form a wall at our property line in Brush Prairie, WA. We went out with our neighbors but didn't see anything. The deer wouldn't leave our yard.

We went back to our house and watched, after a few minutes the deer came back.

Where the deer was concentrating we could hear a fawn crying in the rocks. We moved some of the rocks and smaller boulders and saw the fawn's face among them. He had apparently fallen into a crawl-through in one of the gaps and was now trapped. The larger boulders were too heavy to move and we didn't want to have the rocks cave in on the baby.

We called our Clark County Fire District 3 and a team came out to help. One of our neighbors took some video of the rescue, which I edited into this short clip."
