Deer Goes for Gold With Lap Around Massachusetts Pool

It may have been far from Tokyo, but a deer in North Andover, Massachusetts, completed its own Olympic-style event as it swam around a backyard pool this summer.

Jeffrey Poor caught the surprise swim on video when he went to let his dogs out that morning and subsequently “heard a large splash.”

“I thought my golden retriever had fallen in. I was wrong, as I found a large deer swimming around in the pool,” he said. Credit: Jeffrey Poor via Storyful
