Steve Knoop and his friends spotted a fawn in the middle of the road. Instead of continuing their drive, they decided to rescue the poor animal.


When Knoop and his buds were through nearby woods, a sight in the middle of the road immediately caught their eye - a baby fawn was lying. They knew something was wrong.

The group thought that the animal, who appeared to be limp, would be in jeopardy if they didn't act fast. The whole situation was caught on film.

Knoop and his friends decided to pull over and approached the baby deer. As they examined the nearby woods, they saw the fawn's mother peering at them from a distance.

Knoop realized that the baby fawn was still alive when he took a closer look. Taking a risk, he decided to help the deer.

In the video, he can be seen quietly and carefully approached the helpless creature. He slowly bent down to see how the fawn would react to his presence.

The brave man gently scooped up the fawn and placed it to the nearby woods. It quickly trots off to join her mother.

Knoop left the group in awe. He also captured the hearts of many people. They hailed him as a wildlife hero.

Though Knoop undoubtedly rescued the fawn's life, according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, you should leave newborns alone because the mother will be nearby and will be taking care of it once you move away.


"If you have handled the fawn, rub an old towel in the grass and wipe the fawn to remove human scent. Using gloves, return the fawn to where it was found. Fawns can often be returned to their mothers if taken back to where they were found within eight hours."

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife added: "If a fawn appears cold, weak, thin or injured, and its mother does not return in approximately eight hours, it may be orphaned."

In this case, you can call a local rehabilitator by looking under 'Animal' or 'Wildlife' in your phone directory.
