WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The Department of Natural Resources came to the rescue Friday afternoon.

A fawn was stranded on a sandbar surrounded by floodwaters at Tapawingo Park in West Lafayette. DNR and the Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center attempted to capture the fawn, but ended up scaring it off into the water.

However, the baby deer made it through the water and up to dry land.

The fawn then headed north on a hiking path. Wildlife Center officials ask anyone who spots the baby to call them right away.
