It can be difficult to assess and figure out any given abandoned animal’s situation. Often, rescuers have no idea what the animal has been through; they just know they need to help it.
Just take the case of an Australian fallow deer named Rudie. When a group of strangers found him just days after he was born, they realized that one of his legs had been severed—and it was clear he desperately needed their help. He was rushed to a veterinarian—and you just need to look at him now…
When animal rescuers find an abandoned or stray animal, it’s often incredibly difficult for them to know exactly what the poor thing has been through. This, of course, can make offering a helping hand a bit of a challenge.
That was most certainly the case when it came to an Australian fallow deer named Rudie. Just two days after he was born, a group of strangers discovered him and noticed something horrible: one of his legs had been partially severed in an accident.
