Moment Rescuers Save Deer Stuck Near Frozen Colorado Lake And Release Him Back Into The Wild
The operator promptly called Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) for help. Then, the officers sedated the deer, lifted it, and safely released him back into the wild.
The CPW officers faced a challenge due to the icy conditions. To ensure a safe rescue, they decided to sedate the deer. With careful aim, they used a tranquilizing dart, allowing the deer to peacefully doze off in the cold.
Now, for the tricky part—the rescue. The officers got creative and used a "Snuggie-like contraption" to lift the deer over a nearby road railing. They even jokingly called it a potential "Shark Tank" idea.
The hope was for the deer to have a peaceful holiday weekend in its natural home. This heartwarming tale showcased the dedication of wildlife officers and their compassion in looking out for our furry friends.
