Rescue Team Saves Deer Seen Slipping and Sliding on Frozen Lake

A deer stranded in the middle of a frozen lake in Topilo, Poland, was brought back to safety by a local rescue team on December 6.

Footage by the Hajnowka Forest District shows the young deer struggling to gain its footing on the lake’s icy surface. A rescue crew made up of forest district employees and members of the Hajnowka fire brigade used a boat to help get the animal back to land.

According to the district, the deer appeared to be fine, and ran back into forest following its slippery ordeal. Credit: Hajnówka Forest District via Storyful
