EASTHAMPTON, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Officials received calls of a deer being dragged by a fox on West Street in Easthampton.

When police arrived on scene, the fox was gone and they were able to find an uninjured, newborn deer.

They soon were able to discover that the deer was unable to stand on its own.

Police then spent time with the deer to get it to walk once again and after a few minutes, they were able to walk the deer into a field along the wood line where they found it's mother.

The fawn and its mother have been reunited once again.
