Police in Connecticut's capital city helped rescue a fawn after the baby deer’s mother was hit by a car. 

A resident found the fawn on the highway Sunday next to its mother, which had been struck by a car, according to police. The resident brought the baby to the front door of the Hartford Police Department. 

Images of the encounter show the fawn curled up in the back of a squad car and being held by officers.

Officers cared for the fawn and contacted officials from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, which brought the fawn to a rescue farm.
