A wandering fawn was rescued by deputies with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Tuesday night.

The fawn wandered into a home in Evergreen, near Highway 74.

The homeowners called deputies because they thought the fawn was injured.

"They discovered Bambi was uninjured, just a little lost without her mother," according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. "They kindly got her out of the tub and back outside safely where she scampered off."

Officials said the fawn ran back off into the wild and they hope she was reunited with her mom.
