An Oklahoma game warden saved a fawn’s life after responding to a report of a deer hit by a car on Highway 123.
According to the Oklahoma Game Wardens Facebook page, Game Warden Ryan Walker arrived at the scene to find a doe and fawn dead on the road. He reportedly noticed movement around the doe’s stomach and realized the deer was pregnant and still had a fawn trapped inside.
Walker performed a Caesarean section on the doe and got the fawn out within seconds. It was taken to a rehabilitator in Osage County.
