Firefighters Break Through Frozen Lake To Rescue Deer. See Pics

The deer warmed itself up in an animal van after the rescue


Firefighters in Colorado, USA, rescued a deer from a frozen lake by pulling it from its antlers. In a post shared about eight hours ago on Facebook, the West Metro Fire Rescue details how the deer was found standing in water, too tired to move.

"We got a call from Lakewood Animal Control that the deer was in trouble," the department said. "He was actually standing in the water, but too tired to move."

The firefighters then broke a path through the ice to help the deer back to land. "The team broke a path through the ice, grabbed onto an antler and then guided the deer back to shore," they write.

Pictures shared by them show how the rescue took place.
