Firefighters rescued a tiny fawn in Pacifica on Wednesday morning, after it managed to get itself into a storm drain.
A video posted on Twitter by the North County Fire Authority showed a firefighter reaching into a storm drain located on the corner of Crespi and Barcelona drives, as a fawn audibly whimpers from within.
With the help of two Pacifica police officers, the fawn was eventually freed after 10 minutes and seemingly appeared uninjured.
“A great team effort with @PacificaPolice today. Our firefighters along with PD were able to rescue a fawn caught in the storm drain on the corner of Crespi and Barcelona,” NCFA tweeted.
A deer was spotted nearby and was believed to be the mother, though it seemed the doe was rejecting the fawn, according to NBC Bay Area. If the mother rejects the fawn, it will be taken to the Peninsula Animal Shelter, the report said.
NCFA applauded the efforts of the agencies, and ended their tweet with a pun.
“Great job, team! #FAWNtastic.”
