NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - The Northampton Police Department is reminding drivers to notify police after striking an animal in order to get it help as quickly as possible.

Monday morning, officers responded to Loudville Road for reports of a baby deer that appeared to be abandoned by its mother as it had been on the side of the road for some time.

They later determined that the fawn had actually been struck by a vehicle.

With some help, the officers were able to bring the fawn to the police station before taking it to a veterinary clinic for treatment.
