Subject: Fw: Five years ago, a female deer was hit outside of a Michigan couple's home.
The deer suddenly went into labor and
gave birth to twins.
One of the twins died, but the other
survived. Not knowing what to do with
the near-dead baby, the couple asked
the responding police officer if they
could try and nurse it back to health.
He told them to go for it.
They named her Lilly, and she became
just another member of the family. She
sleeps on a futon, watches animal
planet, likes to sleep in and nap with
the cats, while also enjoying a game
of Frisbee in the back yard.
But after receiving a complaint, the
Michigan Department of Natural
Resources is threatening to take Lilly
away from the only family she's ever
If Lilly fails to rehabilitate, they will
put her down.
Do you think the family should be able
to keep Lily?
