On Monday evening, Morgan Brumm had just stepped outside her family's home in Nebraska when a concerning sound arrived to her ears. Somewhere off in the distance was the unmistakable sound of an animal in distress.
"I hear this horrible cry," Brumm told The Dodo. Her mother had heard it as well, but she was too worried by what she might find if she tracked down the source. Brumm, however, knew she had to act.
"I headed into our backyard on a trail we always go down and I see a mama deer to my left. She sees me and runs away," Brumm recalled. "I remember that there is a well nearby. So I walked towards it not really knowing what I was gonna see. I peeked in a bit and only saw one head. I thought, 'All right, I can do this.' I took another step forward and saw three. I was blown away."
Brumm had found three trapped fawns in desperate need of help.
