Man Pushes Stranded Deer Like A Sled Across Frozen Reservoir
A Wisconsin man said he "didn't even think twice" about saving a deer stuck in a frozen reservoir in Cranmoor this week.
"She was struggling and I knew she needed help getting off the ice," Gil Lencour told WMTV.
At first Lencour considered tying a leash to the stranded animal and bringing it to safety. But after his buddy John Moss came to help, the creature got excited and kept trying to get up, Lencour told WMTV. So he put his hands on the deer to calm it down and began pushing, pushing the animal like a sleigh until it reached a firm footing.
In footage shot by Moss, a tired Lencour asks at one point: "How much closer have we got?" "You have a way," replied Moss with a laugh.
You can hear Lencour joking "You're welcome" when the deer finally scurries on non-slip ground towards the forest.
"I had a big smile on my face," he told the station. "I was glad she could run away on her own," he said.
In 2019, a Canadian rescued an entire family of deer from a frozen lake.
