COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A Colorado Springs man saves a fawn trapped in a window well with a mother deer nearby anxiously waiting.

Todd Dierdorff scooped up the fawn with unsteady legs and placed it on the ground next to its mother.

It’s a sweet moment, and also, as it happens, a teaching moment.

Wildlife officers say the way Dierdorff handled the situation–touching the fawn quickly and then immediately letting it go–was exactly right when handling wildlife.
