You can't let sleeping fawns lie

You can't let sleeping fawns lie

It was chilly at six o'clock Monday morning, so the gravel between the WES Commuter tracks at the rail facility in Wilsonville were probably warm and comfortable for a fawn that laid down to take a nap.

But being on train tracks can be hazardous to a fawn's health.  so, maintenance technician Ed Whitaker moved in, wrapped the sleeping deer in a blanket and carried it off the tracks.  That's when the Bambi woke up, jumped from its rescuers arms and scampered through a fence and trotted to meet mom in a nearby field.
