They See Something Unusual Swimming In The Lake And Decide To Step In To Help

Reddit user IUsuallyDoWhatIWant was on the lake with some friends to do some fishing when they noticed something in the distance.

“While searching for some deep fishing holes we saw in the distance, what appeared to be a deer swimming in the lake. Upon closer inspection we discovered a baby deer struggling to stay afloat in 6-7 ft waters. It was clearly near drowning and we knew it wouldn’t last much longer on its own. We decided to step in.”

Here’s the complete story with pictures.

See that dot in the distance? That’s a baby deer.
