Johnston County EMS workers saved the life of a small fawn Thursday night.
Workers at a Benson EMS Station Number 2 in the Overshot Community saw skid marks on US 701 and stopped to investigate.
The crew believed the mother was hit by a car and the fawn was left behind on the edge of the roadway.
The crew placed the fawn in a field behind the EMS station but on Friday morning it hadn’t moved.
EMT Chris McLeod arrived for duty Friday morning and starting researching how to care for fawns. He located a rehab facility in Lee County that agreed to accept the animal if someone could take it to them in Sanford.
Chris was able to catch the deer and a neighbor offered the use of a dog crate to help with the transport. The neighbor also drove to a Tractor Supply store to purchase milk replacement for the animal before making its way to Sanford.
These Johnston County EMS workers showed compassion for all lives.
