Patricia Loomis, who works at the credit union at the bottom of 51st Street, has an update on the fawn that was orphaned last Friday after the momma was hit by a car:
From looking across 51st I spied a yearling and a fawn up by Stack Hill on Wednesday morning. I am hoping that this is our fawn and the yearling it was with are becoming a family. Here's hoping. We spent almost all of Friday "caring" for the little one, trying to keep the baby from coming out too close to the road.
Pat (who also works at the credit union) and I were working with Police Chief Reese and the animal control officer to help capture the fawn. We didn't see it happen as of us closing down on Friday evening. John and I went back on Saturday evening to see if we could see any sign of the little one with no luck. The animal control officer had only left the cage until dusk on Friday night.
The yearling and fawn together yesterday gave me some hope that maybe they are trying to survive together.
