Twin fawns were removed from busy Highway 50 by Placerville-area CHP Officer Bryan Schneider last weekend.

The officer was assisted June 24 by a man and his two daughters. The fawns, who showed signs of dehydration, were promptly named “Hope” and “Chance” before they were turned over to Sierra Wildlife Rescue.

The volunteer-run rescue group rehabilitates animals for release back to the wild – and provides the public with ways to live in harmony with wildlife.
