Some quick thinking on the part of Oklahoma Game Warden Ryan Walker helped turn a tragic tale of a mama doe around over the weekend.

"When Warden Walker arrived on scene the fawn was also deceased,” a post on the organization’s Facebook page reads. But the mama deer didn't just have one baby. “Noticing movement in the doe's stomach, Warden Walker took quick action performing a cesarean section on the doe to attempt to save the other fawn trapped inside.”

“Within seconds the newborn fawn was out and breathing on its own,” the incredible post continues. “The fawn was taken to a local rehabilitator in Osage Co. Thanks to the Game Warden, this fawn has a second chance at life.”

The post (below) also includes sweet photos of the rescued newborn fawn.
