Jody took care of the fawn by feeding it with his own share of milk, when he saw that the fawn was unable to drink milk from gourd, he dipped his hand in milk and put it in the fawn’s mouth. It sucked it and was content.
Penny was very glad when Jody brought the fawn home.
Penny was bitten by a rattlesnake. A doe was killed because its liver was used to draw out the poison. In return, Jody wanted to bring its fawn home and take care of it.
Mill-Wheel rode Jody to the forest.
Jody went into the forest, searched here and there, he studied the sand where there were small hoof prints and found the fawn. He touched it, put its arms around him and carried it out.
She gasped and set down the pot helplessly because there was not enough food in the family to feed the fawn. She reacted in this way because she cared and loved her child more than any one else.
Penny Baxter allowed Jody to go and find the fawn and raise it because he had killed its mother to save his life. The fawn was orphaned and it was ungrateful to leave it to starve.
It is not right to kill an animal to save a human life because to save a life we can’t kill another. Animals are also living beings and they too have the right to live.
It means that we all are dependent on one another just to support our lives. We had to pay a price for everything.
