The buck fawn that was saved near Brussels during the blizzard conditions on Sunday was euthanized on Tuesday, according to the DNR. Penny Price revived the small deer and cared for it until Monday afternoon when Department of Natural Resources officials picked him up. The buck fawn apparently had an injured leg when Price rescued it on Sunday. Price said prior to hearing of the deer's fate that she knows they at least provided some comfort for the deer.
Price says the deer may have suffered from malnutrition but was able to stand up before being picked up by DNR officials.
