PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. – It’s quite a predicament when a deer is stuck in the middle of an icy pond. But that’s what crews from Central Pierce Fire and Rescue in Washington State had to deal with Thursday morning.
A special operations swift-water team joined them along with fish and wildlife officers and members of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
They all formulated a plan, and as you can see, it worked.
The deer was pulled to safety.
Officials were quick to say the deer is doing great and is recovering from exhaustion.
