Fawn Rescued From Frozen Utah Lake by Friends on Fishing Trip

While out ice fishing at Utah’s Panguitch Lake, two friends came to the rescue of a fawn stranded on the ice.

Gage Bell recorded this video out on the ice as his buddy Bransen Jackson carried the young deer back to the shore.

“I picked it up and it was super calm, super docile like it kind of understood, ‘OK these guys are going to try and help me’,” Jackson told KUTV.

Jackson was unsure how long the animal had been on the ice. “When it got onto solid ground it wasn’t walking normal, it was pretty off and you could tell it was pretty sore,” he said. Credit: Gage Bell via Storyful
