Girl Saves Deer
(2007-09-20)
(wgvu) - FORT GRATIOT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - An insistent 6-year-old St.
Clair County girl is being credited with helping to save the deer's
life.
Abby Smith told teacher Linda Aho yesterday that the deer had
fallen into a hole at Aho's home -- which is located adjacent to
Lighthouse Christian Academy's playground in Fort Gratiot Township.
Aho says she thought Abby was kidding, but the girl burst into
tears when the students lined up to go inside and nobody had
checked out her claim.
The school sent staff members to Aho's house, where they found
the 80- to 100-pound buck. The deer was later rescued.
