Former pet ‘rhinestone’ fawn back in the wild at Fort Flagler

The Associated Press

PORT ANGELES — A fawn that was once treated as a pet with a rhinestone collar is back in the wild after being rehabbed at Center Valley Animal Rescue in Quilcene.

It was one of four orphaned fawns taken to the center in May. They were released last month at Fort Flagler State Park where hunting is not allowed.

The Peninsula Daily News reports the rhinestone fawn was brought in by state wildlife officers on a leash and wearing an imitation leopard skin coat.

Another fawn had been injured by coyotes. Another had been hit by a car. Another was orphaned after its mother was hit by a car.

Center Valley Animal Rescue director Sara Penhallegon says the fawns were released in a protected area because they “don’t have street smarts.”
