Deer Rescued From Freezing Lake in Colorado

Firefighters came to the aid of a deer that had become trapped in a freezing lake in Colorado.

The dramatic video, recorded by Dominik Von Pichl on Monday Jan. 22, shows rescuers pulling the deer by its antlers to safety from the water in Lakewood.

The deer was standing in the water but too tired to move, according to West Metro Fire Rescue.

“The team broke a path through the ice, grabbed onto an antler and then guided the deer back to shore, where he warmed up in Lakewood Police Department’s animal control van,” West Metro Fire Rescue said in a Facebook post.
