HOPATCONG — Dale Sloat once tied a rope around a tree, lowering himself 75 feet down a rock face to save a dog.

He's also had a finger bitten off by a cat, almost been trampled by a bear and has been dragged about 20 feet by a dog.

This week's rescue wasn't nearly as dangerous. But something tells us the dying fawn appreciated it just as much.

Sloat, Hopatcong's animal control officer, found it on the side of the road after it had been hit by a car.
