Family rescues frozen fawn from snow storm

Friday, March 1st 2019, 4:27 pm - The family rescued the fawn after they watched it collapse outside of their home.

A family rescued a little deer who almost froze to death at their door during a snowstorm in Brussels, Wisconsin on February 24.

Penny Paye Price said the young buck approached her home and looked through a window at her family before collapsing.

He was rescued and brought inside for warmth. The family named him Giannis and fed him water, corn and apple sauce.

“I, of course, had to run out and carry him in as my family watched with disbelief,” Price said on a Facebook post.

“We’ve got him covered with warm towels and giving him water. Not sure what’s going to come of this."

A staff member from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has since taken Giannis into their care.
