A Washington Department of Transportation camera operator has caught the first few steps in the life of a baby deer born last week underneath the Jackson Ave traffic camera on Highway 16.
Photographs of the baby deer taking last Friday were mailed to Jenni Hogan, KIRO TV Traffic anchor, who posted them today on the station’s Web site with a short story.
Usually the employees at WSDOT’s command center watch hundreds of cameras every morning and look at brake lights and backups. Last week camera operator Rich Langlois had the pleasure of watching what he described as the Discovery Channel, right on his very own WSDOT camera.
According to KIRO TV, WSDOT employees have named the mother deer Pearl and the baby deer little Jackson.
