BATON ROUGE - LSP Trooper David Hernandez came to the rescue of a fawn that became trapped in a flooded apartment complex on Wednesday.

State Police have joined in the efforts to evacuate both people and animals in need. Trooper Hernandez came across the baby deer in a complex near Burbank Drive in Baton Rouge.

Viewers and reporters have submitted several images of deer that have been flushed from their natural habitat by the recent torrential downpour that brought flooding to South Louisiana.

The fawn was brought to the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine where it will be examined before being returned to a suitable spot in the wild.
