SOUTHBURY, Conn. (WTNH) – A Connecticut State Trooper is taking on the role of mother to two baby deer.
Trooper Ben Pagoni responded to an incident in which the mother of the deer was killed.
Since there were no rescues available for the young deer, Trooper Pagoni asked for permission to care for them himself.
Once he received permission, he took them to his home, and with the help of his family, is caring for the two deer.
He will make sure they are fed and warm until a rescue becomes available to care for them.
