Animal rescues are always an emotional ordeal. You can’t help but feel bad for the poor creatures, and you hope and pray for their success. As it turns out, deer rescues can be especially intense because of a complex disease associated with capture and handling of wild animals.

Simon, a British wildlife expert, feared this may have been the case with a roe deer that was struck by a car in the British countryside. She had deep cuts on her head, and was rushed to a nearby veterinary hospital. Racing against the clock, they then returned the deer to where she had been found. The poor deer appeared to give up on life, but watch how Simon refuses to give up on her.
