IDF frees fawn from Bedouin captors

Thursday, July 19, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

Israeli soldiers training in the Jordan Valley late Wednesday night found a wild fawn tied to a post outside a Bedouin tent. The soldiers immediately called a nature reserve inspector, who told them to free the animal and take it back to their base for examination before setting it free.

The inspector, Assaf Kaplan, told The Jerusalem Post that “this is not the first time that soldiers have saved wild animals” from local Bedouins.

“The animals that are caught in the wild are usually raised for a few years as pets and then slaughtered and eaten,” added Kaplan.
