A Texas man came to the rescue of a drowning deer this week, and it was all caught on camera.
In a video uploaded to Facebook by the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable's Office, an unidentified Walden man can be seen swimming with a deer in his arms, while using a flotation device for support.
He swims to the dock, where another man tries to pull the deer out of the water, but it doesn't work. So the man then swims to the steps, where a deputy picks up the deer and sets it on the grass.
Obviously weak and exhausted, the shaking deer slowly gets up on its feet and starts walking.
According to news station KHOU, the deer was rescued from Lake Conroe, which is wrapped in bulkhead (a manmade divider), eliminating a shoreline for animals to get in and out of.
