The pet doe, found a. a tiny
orphaned fawn by Mr. and Mrs. E.
L. Davis and raised "Ilk. a member
of th. family," retired to the woods
early In March to have a fawn, of
her own.
Mr. and Mr.. Davis waited patient
ly a. their Clatsop county home
near Bradwood Junction, on the
Columbia river highway. They were
certain that Baby Doll would come
home with her (awn despite a wide
scientific belief that a doe will not
remain tame after mating.
But Baby Doll had no chanc," to
prove her loyalty to the Davlsea.
Bobv Doll wa. killed before th.
fawn was born,
Albert C. Uassner. state polio,
game officer, says that a doe was
brutally killed and burled on th.
hank of Onat creek, near the Davla
Th. manner of her death con
vinced Oassner that the victim wa.
Baby Doll.
With Ouy Taylor, .tat. gam. of
ficer of Portland. Oassner conducted
an extensive Investigation because
Baby Doll wasn't .hot. She was
killed by someone who perhap.
knew she waa tame and trusting.
Someone who lured her cloae pel
ted her, maybe, and then crushed
her skull with a heavy blow.
