Police officers are trained to protect and help residents in whatever way they can. Putting themselves in danger for the good of others is just part of the job. Officer Dave Shinaver stopped by the side of the road to help Jaden Bashaw. The teen was walking home when he found a fawn that had fallen in a sewer drain in Sylvania Township, Ohio. Bashaw called the police department for help. That is when officer Shinaver arrived and jumped into action right away. Adding to the tense situation was the fact that the mama deer was watching from a safe distance, hoping her baby would be saved and reunited with her.The animal seemed young. It was scared not knowing where to go.
Although, he was unable to immerse himself fully, he had enough opening to reach the baby deer.
Nonetheless, if the officer had not stepped in to help the fawn probably would not have survived.
It was all worth it when he caught the adorable animal. The fawn, although grateful for the rescue wanted to get to its mama as quickly as possible.
The Sylvania TWP Police shared the heroic rescue on their Twitter feed.
The fawn rushed to be with its mama deer who was anxiously waiting.
