As I crossed the French Creek bridge tonight just after 5 p.m., I saw, in the dark, lying on the road between the highway and the off-ramp to Columbia Beach, an injured deer. It was very small, still alive and flicking it’s tail.
I pulled off and stopped and ran back, not knowing what to do — how I would lift it up or how to get it into my car.
Just at that moment, a yellow Beetle pulled over too and out jumped two young people who scooped up the little deer and said they would take it to a vet.
My heartfelt thanks to you two — for your efforts to save that little life. Many people feel it’s just another deer, but some see every life as deserving a chance.
You seemed just like two angels to me.
