Georgia jogger saves baby deer stuck in fencing
A Georgia woman who was out for a jog saw a baby deer caught in some iron fencing and sprung into action to save it.
The heroics were caught on film near Stone Mountain Park in an east Atlanta suburb.
The woman, who was identified on Twitter as Chloe Dorsey, is dressed in a sports bra, spandex leggings and sandals. She is seen on the video saving the doe by channeling her inner Wonder Woman as she pries two bars trapping the animal just wide enough apart for an escape.
After the rescue, a spent Dorsey places her hands on her hips and watches in satisfaction as the deer scampers away.
She then struggles to scale the fencing while humorously asking, “Ain’t nobody gonna help me? Y’all done forgot about me! That ain’t right.”
While atop the fence, Dorsey complains, “(Expletive) you done got stuck again?! Aw Hell naw!”
She plops down and grabs her camera to survey the scene.
Before we see what’s going on, an exhausted Dorsey scolds, “You need to learn how to jump, boo … What is gonna happen when I’m not here?”
Clearly annoyed, she also admonishes a couple of other deer in the area.
“And y’all just standing around lookin’, not showing her how to jump. … Jesus!”
When we see the new scene, it appears that the deer is caught between the bars of a barrier typically used in staging to separate crowds during performances. The barriers are placed on the park’s lawn.
“You’re gonna jump next time,” she tells the deer. “I’ma help you one more time, girl. OK?”
The Wonder Woman pry doesn’t work on the barrier. Dorsey grunts and groans to no avail.
“No!” the overwhelmed jogger says as she places her hands atop her head and paces.
She grabs the baby deer to try to re-position it, then tugs at the bars a second time.
Dorsey surveys the area. “Somebody help.”
Then she hops over the barrier in attempt to get a better angle to assist the deer.
Landing heavily on the ground on the opposite side, she startles the deer and it manages to shake loose.
“You better not get stuck again, or that’s your ass!” Dorsey yells after the fleeing doe.
👏👏👏 A kind heart and loads of determination! I hope great things come your way, you’re a good egg! The world needs more people like you 💖
