Hopkinton sergeant’s rescue of fawn makes its way to Facebook


HOPKINTON — The photo posted on Facebook Wednesday says it all. Hopkinton Police Sgt. Thomas Quaratella is shown kneeling next to the fawn he had just rescued.

Turns out Quaratella had rescued the apparently abandoned baby a few months back and fellow officer Justin Nutting took a quick photograph. However, the photo has just made its way to social media via a retired cop friend who decided to give the sergeant a thumbs up for his efforts.

Quaratella said police received calls from concerned drivers about the fawn running in an out of traffic in the area of Route 91 at Beechwood Hollow. Neighbors and motorists heard the deer crying as it wandered around, presumably looking for its mother, said Quaratella. It was in that particular area, he said, that a doe had been hit and killed by a driver days before.

Quaratella said the fawn was so desperate that it came up to him, and he was able to place a dog leash around its neck.

He said the animal did not fight and was docile while being rescued.

Quaratella said state Department of Environmental Management workers picked up the fawn and transferred the animal to wildlife refuge for aid and rehabilitation.
