Jersey Cop Performs C-Section on Dead Deer, Delivers Fawn
Here's a rescue story unlike any we have heard before. A New Jersey cop delivered a fawn via an emergency C-section after its mother was hit and killed.
Robert Lagonera, an animal control officer in Washington Township (Warren County), wrote on Facebook that around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, police were called to the scene. Officer J. Vernon "took the initiative" and performed a C-section saved one of two fawns that were inside the dead deer.
The animal control officer said he took the fawn home to warm it up and rubbed its chest "to help the underdeveloped lungs work." Of course he did. These guys are amazing!
