Sometimes, people go do unbelievable things just to save another life. In that incredible moment, all fears and worries are set aside and bravery takes over. That’s exactly what happened to this young boy in Sacramento, California, who set his fears aside when he heard a cry emanate from within the woods.
Jacob Butler searched the area where the crying sound was coming from and discovered that it was coming from a hole in the ground. The hole was probably around five feet deep and was dark inside. When Jacob looked closer into the dark pit, he was surprised by what he saw – a baby deer trapped at the bottom.
When Jacob told his father about the fawn, the latter immediately contacted Animal Control. Together, the father and son tandem devised a plan to rescue the fawn trapped at the bottom of the pit.
The Animal Control personnel used a "catch stick" to pull the baby deer out of the pit. Afterwards, Jacob, his father, and the Animal Control personnel comforted the baby deer before they tried looking for its mother. As a reward, they got to witness the most adorable reunion ever!
