There’s plenty of life in Willowbrook Cemetery. Officials there proudly announce 2 new additions.
Born Wednesday in Section 11, the twins and their mother are healthy and roaming the grounds.
But it wasn’t easy. Cemetery manager Danny Amoruccio reports that as workers dug a grave for the burial, the mother walked over — and gave birth right there to 2 fawns.
But she got scared and fled — leaving one behind. After nearly falling into the grave, it became attached to Danny. It followed him everywhere.
Willowbrook officials called Animal Control. They quickly came, wrapped the newborn deer up, and walked it to the woods. The mother appeared immediately, and hustled it away.
The family has grown to 16. They now reside — happily and together — in undeveloped sections of the cemetery.
