'Giant Deer' Spotted Swimming in Lake Texoma

A large deer was spotted swimming in the waters of Lake Texoma, on the Oklahoma-Texas border, on October 14, by two Louisiana men on a fishing trip. The deer ran into lake while trying to escape a dog that had been chasing it, reports said.

One of the men, Jordan Breaux, a hunter from Louisiana who shot this video, described the deer as a “giant.”

Breaux and a friend were participating in a two-day Bass Champs fishing tournament when they came across the deer. Breaux told Storyful he had to steer the deer back out of the lake, and got between the deer and the dog to prevent any conflict. Credit: Jordan Breaux via Storyful
