It warms the heart to see people go out of their way to help an animal in distress, and from the looks of this deer, it was in dire need of a helping hand.
According to the Vimeo poster cj
“This is my dad’s buddy. Here is what he is saying: >I was driving along when I see this deer struggling to survive. I felt obligated to help her, so I pulled over, trekked through the woods, and crawled out onto the ice. I used a rope to pull her out. I am so glad she is safe. Now we need to find her mom. **pets deer** >I will call her Miss Ice River. She must be so cold. I am so happy that she survived. Farewell.”
No word on what happened to the deer, but we hope it warmed up and carried on with its life in the forest — and avoids icy water in the future!
