Trying to Rescue a Dazed Deer Suffering from Head Injury and Infection

Occurred on November 17, 2020 / Tonawanda, New York, USA Info from Licensor: Received a call from the local police department, a buck was found wandering in a busy plaza parking lot. After sedation and transportation to my facility, I found two old puncture wounds more than likely from fighting another buck. The wounds were badly infected and being near ears, eyes, and brain caused his disoriented mannerism. I treated him for a few days but unfortunately, the infection was too far gone. I’m grateful he was given a chance but passed comfortably and safely. The outcome may have been worse if left in the parking lot.
