From Georgia’s Rome News-Tribune:

Melissa and Alan Dunagan were out walking when their dogs chased the fawn, separating it from its mother. “It wasn’t until after we put the dogs back in the house and were about to release the fawn that we realized it had six legs,” said Melissa Dunagan.

And from a follow-up News-Tribune story:

_The six-legged wonder deer that has captured the attention of the world will now have a permanent home in Athens, thanks to the work of Dr. George Gallagher.

Spyder, as Gallagher named it, will spend the rest of its life at a private facility run by an Athens woman who rehabilitates deer._
