Twin newborn fawns rescued after tumbling down Kennesaw Mountain

Two twin fawns learned an important life lesson just minutes after being born: slippery when wet.

Still wet after birth Monday at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, the deer rolled down some slick rocks and onto a road, according to a Facebook post from the park.

Which had more visits in 2016? Kennesaw Mountain or the White House?

Park volunteer Amy Campbell scooped up the wee ones and climbed the rocks to bring them safely back to what was probably one panicking mother.

The post from the park’s Facebook page had more than 1,000 reactions and 180 shares by Friday afternoon less than 24 hours after being posted.
