Dazed Deer Gets Reprieve From Officer
Deputy Ryan Swartz responded to a call that a car had hit a deer. He got there and the doe was still totally dazed and frozen from the impact. He says it is one of the strangest calls he has ever been on. The doe had just been hit by a Buick and was still standing in the road frozen.
When Swartz arrived he thought it was a decoy it was so still. He thought if he walked up to it, it would run off. He walked up to it, it stood still. He petted the doe behind the ears, still nothing. Deciding the only way to clear it from the road was to pick it up and carry it. Swartz carried the deer off the road, and the deer stood motionless for another 10 minutes. Swartz went to pet it again, and the deer finally came to from its shock and ran off. From 5WNEM.com.
