OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (KFOR) - A newborn fawn is recovering after being separated from its mother in the aftermath of last week's Oklahoma tornados.
Oklahoma City Police Sergeant Jeff Tanksley walked out his back door Sunday morning and spotted something in the distance.
It was a fawn.
He says the baby deer probably weighed less than ten pounds, new to the world.
"He still had his umbilical cord, it was still attached. So he was just a few days old," Tanksley says.
He waited several hours before deciding to intervene.
When the fawn kept crying and wandering around, Sgt. Tanksley went into work mode.
He loaded the fawn up in his police car an headed to the Wildcare Foundation.
Officials there say the fawn is doing well and will eventually be released back into the wild.
