FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

We have a very sad update for you today. 

The little fawn that was rescued off of the side of Lakeland Drive after being hit by a car has died.

Dr. Will Rumbavage says that the deer was so badly injured that it had to be put down. He says it had apparently been there for awhile and had a broken pelvis and thigh bone and was bleeding from the rectum.

Good Samaritans stopped to come to the aid of the injured fawn found on Lakeland Drive on Tuesday.

One of the Good Samaritans went up the street to the MSU vet clinic to get help.

Then Mississippi Wildlife officials also came to the scene.
