York Co. sergeant who saved abandoned fawn rescues three raccoons

YORK COUNTY, Va. (WVEC) -- Sergeant Adam Cooper should be called the Animal Whisperer. He's at it again with his life-saving skills!

Sgt. Cooper with the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office rescued three baby raccoons he found abandoned in the middle of the road.

If you remember, this was the same sergeant who saved an abandoned fawn he found on the side of the road last summer.

The York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office posted a picture of one of the baby raccoons on their Facebook page, alluding to Sergeant Cooper's admirable episodes when he saved a fawn and a number of turtles.

The Facebook post has garnered well over 200 reactions and shared more than a dozen times.

Sergeant Cooper has been working for the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office for ten years now.

Shelley Ward, Community and Media Relations for the York-Poquoson Sheriff''s Office, said that Cooper is "just a very nice person, very caring, nice to be around."

"I work here 'cause I like to help my community and I like to do what's right and I'm kind of an animal person so I couldn't just leave it there," Cooper said when he rescued the fawn last year.
