Tomah Police officers rescue fawn

TOMAH, Wis. (WEAU) Police officers spend their career keeping people safe, and saving lives.

But sometimes the people they save, aren't people at all.

The Tomah Police Department says Officer Hintz and Officer Franks were called to the area of the dam at Lake Tomah Monday for a fawn stuck in some rocks.

When they got there, they decided to let the fawn stay put, because its mom was still in the area.

But Tuesday they went back and the fawn was still stuck.

So the two officers got it out of the rocks, and reunited it with its mom.
