Wilkes-Barre, PA

Deputy State Game Warden Mike Pevear, who serves in Luzerne County, recently found himself ankle-deep in mud with a bawling fawn after it fell to the bottom of a 8-foot deep cement water reservoir in Exeter Township. Pevear patiently waited for the fawn to calm down before rescuing it by wrapping it in a blanket and hoisting it to safety. The fawn bounded away, seemingly no worse for wear according to the Pennsylvania State Game Commission.

Pevear thanked the Kirby family for their help with the rescue.
