A man from Ontario, Canada, managed to save three deer he found stranded on a frozen lake after coming across them while out skating on his lunch break.
“I went back to work and grabbed some rope. The ice was still too thin for any kind of vehicle, so skating was the only option,” RP told Storyful.
“The two younger ones took off running right away, but the doe stuck around with what seemed like an injured hip or leg,” he continued. The man called the Ontario Natural Resources Ministry but was told that since the lake was not entirely frozen, it would not be safe for anyone to immediately visit the scene to further assess the situation.
