Zipper Truck operators found the deer standing up at around 5:20 a.m. under the Furnace Brook Parkway near Exit 8.

Zipper truck driver Robbie Bodion picked up the fawn, put him in the air conditioned truck and gave him water while they opened the rest of the lane up I-93 toward Boston.

They gave the deer grass and water before it was turned over later in the morning to environmental authorities.

The deer was checked out by vets and released into the Blue Hills Reservation.

It’s not known how long the deer was trapped.

Bodion says there is a good chance the fawn was stuck there for a couple days.
