Fawn rescued from collapsed in-ground pool

On Tuesday afternoon Milford Fire Dispatch received a call to assist Milford Animal Control with the removal of a fawn from a collapsed in-ground pool on the west side of town.

Engine 3 and the Shift commander responded. On Engine 3’s arrival they found Animal Control and Milford police on the scene with a baby deer trapped in the collapsed pool.

Fire department personnel, along with Animal Control officers, were able to corral the fawn. The deer was not harmed in the process and was taken to an animal rehabilitation center in Enfield as a precaution.
