HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police in Connecticut have come to the rescue of a baby deer whose mother died.

Hartford police say a resident told them she found the fawn on the highway Sunday next to its mother, which had died after being hit by a car. The resident brought the fawn to the front door of the Hartford Police Department.

Images of the encounter show the fawn curled up in the back of a squad car and being held by officers.

Police say they turned the deer over to the state’s environmental department, which brought it to a rescue farm.
