A Louisiana state trooper proves that real men are kind to animals after coming to the aid of a fawn following the most recent hurricane.
Master Trooper Bill Blackwell is melting the hearts of animal enthusiasts across the country for his compassion shown to a fawn that had been separated from its mother during the aftermath of Hurricane Issac.
Past storms that have devastated Louisiana have prompted authorities to be extra vigilant during patrols for the health and welfare of its community members during mother natures’ dangerous hissy fits.
While Isaac lost its hurricane status Wednesday afternoon, officials warned of continued life-threatening hazards from storm surges and local flooding.
The Trooper from Troop L in Mandeville, Louisiana couldn’t help but save the frightened animal from Issacs wrath.
Troop L covers the parishes of St. Helena, Tangipahoa, Washington and St. Tammany.
After observing the fawn which was stranded on Louisiana Highway 22, Trooper Blackwell stopped, took the helpless animal into his arms and reunited it with its mother on higher grounds.
In other areas of Louisiana, law enforcement, rescue workers and the community also came together to help one another from the quickly growing water levels.
Emergency crews and residents while assisting the younger, older and weaker members of the community are also commended for their compassion after being observed rescuing a dog during Hurricane Isaac on Highway 39 separating Plaquemines and St. Bernard parishes.
Other notable acts of rescue involving humans and their furry companions took place throughout Louisiana. You can view photo’s of such in the slide show.
