Out and About: All’s well that ends well

ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELL: This beautiful little fawn was temporarily stunned after running into the side of a pickup truck at the side entrance to Tim Hortons in Southampton at 3:45 p.m. today (Saturday).

According to the driver, the baby animal had been chased across Albert Street S. (Hwy. 21) by a dog. As luck would have it, signs of breathing became evident as it lay otherwise motionless on the pavement. After a prolonged five minutes of dealing with the trauma of the incident, the little one began to move, righting itself on wobbly legs before scrambling off into the treed thicket at George Marion Park, supposedly none the worse for wear and much to the relief of bystanders and the truck driver who had just placed an emergency call to 911.
