Heroic Officer Saves Deer In Distress

ARS_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_300x250

Sometimes, police officers are asked to perform things that are outside of their normal job description.

That was the case for officer Kevin Sweet, who was off duty when he saw a deer in distress. The deer had tangled himself up in Christmas lights, and wasn’t able to move.

Officer Sweet wasted no time as he calmly talked to the small deer and attempted to set him free.

All animals deserve compassionate care, but is estimated that tens of millions of cats live on the streets of the United States. Sadly, many communities attempt to control their numbers through lethal methods such as catch and kill. Such methods are not only horribly cruel, they are also ineffective and costly. There is a better way.

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing homeless cat populations through sterilization. TNR begins with the trapping of cats using humane cage traps. The cats are then taken (in the trap) to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases. Finally, the cats are “ear tipped” so they can be easily identified as sterilized. Following surgery, the cat is returned to the trap and allowed to recover, then released to the site of capture to live out its natural life while being cared for by community volunteers.
