Bill Schulte was driving home from church on Sunday in Prior Lake, MN when he saw a deer get hit by aCAR. He wanted to make sure other drivers were safe so he stopped to move the deer to the side of the road.
He approached the deer expecting the worst but wanted to be a good samaritan. What he didn’t expect to see was an unborn fawn kicking inside it’s now deceased mother.
Bill’s first instinct was to save the unborn fawn. With some quick thinking, he grabbed his pocket knife and cut the little baby to freedom.
“I felt where the baby was, opened up, and pulled the baby out because the baby wanted to slide rightNOW, and I cleared his throat, his airway, rubbing it, and it started breathing; everything was cool,” Shulte said.
The baby fawn is being called “Bambi.” He took him to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota in Roseville and is expected to make a full recovery.
