Many years ago while in a canoe at Wildwood, I spotted a fawn swimming from the boat landing near my grandparent's cottage. The State Police were across the river at the boat landing, where a doe had been hit and killed; they just wanted to make sure that the fawn made it across the river. I went to Talada's (next door to my grandparents) and took them to where the fawn was. They took the fawn home and took care of it until it was big enough to release back into its natural habitat. At that time (probably 35 plus years ago), the game warden gave them his blessing. What has happened to this country? Good for you ... you did the right thing!

Contact the Pennsylvania Game Warden. They will help you place the animal if Sayre/Athens has an ordinance against keeping the fawn. Congratulations on your good sense and being a hero. No one wants to see a repeat of '72 with the cows drowning.

Albert Beatty did not rescue this fawn on his own. One of his tenants helped him. The tenant is the one who waded into the waters. Just like Kathy and Albert to try and hog all of the glory.
Then they kept the fawn locked up in a stall in their dark barn for several months after the flood waters had gone down. The police had told them to let the deer go as soon as the waters went down, but they wanted to keep it. The fawn was perfectly healthy when pulled from the waters. There was no reason to keep him beyond the flood. Unless Albert wanted an easy, well fattened, target come hunting season.
Thankfully, it was set free "by accident".

This is in response to "Anon" about the fawn. You must be kidding about this right ? So what if it took more then one to rescue the fawn, it was rescued ! You must be related to the TENANTS ( Jennifer) or whoever. They kept the fawn in the barn and fed it very well and sat with it, which is what a human does INSTEAD of letting it go by ACCIDENT before it was old enough so the coyotes wouldn't get it.
