Oh 'Deer' Me ...

Funny, but it could happen.

Who hasn't taken a double-take as they drove by someone's nicely landscaped yard because they saw what looked like a deer laying on the front lawn? I know I have. After all, many of these ornaments do look quite real, at least at first glance they do. So, Yes, I can see how it could happen.

Yeah, we could argue that it was a waste of emergency resources sending a team to rescue the "injured fawn," but at the same time, if legitimate, we would also have to say kudos to the 911 caller for his/her concern. Nobody in their right mind would want to see an injured animal suffering, would they? Of course not! There are likely far more ways that we waste emergency medical resources every day than an occasional "oops" like this.

At the end of the day, who knows; perhaps this "emergency" call may have actually been exactly the de-stressor that the doctor ordered.
