Belmont Firefighters Rescue Fawn
Contact: Captain Patrick Halleran (650) 595-7430
Belmont Firefighters were called into San Carlos today, to rescue a fawn that was trapped in the backyard of a home.
Today, at approximately 1:00PM, Belmont firefighters responded to the 600 block of Wellington Drive in San Carlos, on an animal rescue. Upon arrival, firefighters found that a fawn had become stuck between the wall of the home and a fence post. Firefighters were able to free the baby deer in about 15 minutes. The fawn, which had apparently become trapped during the night, had some minor injuries and was released after being checked at the scene by San Mateo County Animal Rescue & Control.
