Officer saves fawn from deadly California fires
The grateful fawn was seen affectionately thanking the officer that saved it. The CHP San Fransico Twitter account shared a photograph with the officer holding the fawn as it licked him affectionately.
California is in the midst of a massive disaster prevention as the fire department of the entire state is stretched thin trying to douse out over 17 large wildfires across the state.
The fire has consumed over 200,000 acres and as of today has caused a total of 8 deaths. As the wildfire continues to expand, each life saved is an accomplishment to all the state departments, regardless of the species.
San Francisco highway patrol saved a fawn who got caught in the midst of the calamity. The grateful creature couldn't thank the officers who saved it's life enough. Read more about the CHP San Fransisco on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
