MENTOR-ON-THE-LAKE, Ohio- A fawn was reunited with its mother in Mentor-on-the-Lake on Friday.

A resident of Springwood Court found the baby deer crying in a sink hole behind his property. The Mentor-on-the-Lake Police Department said the man was worried the deer’s mother, who remained nearby, would become aggressive if he tried to help.
