Oh deer! Big buck rescued from frozen lake – WTMJ-TV (press release) (registration) (blog)
A deer that wandered onto a frozen Kenosha County lake was rescued Saturday.
Fifteen-year-old Kenzi Ketterhagen was with her parents when she noticed the deer on Silver Lake.
The deer had walked onto the ice and kept falling because it couldn’t get its footing on the slippery surface.
According to Kenosha News, the Department of Natural Resources was called, and with the help of a neighbor’s ATV, were able to drag the deer onto solid ground by attaching a line to its antlers.
Video shows the deer limping into the woods, but it’s not clear if it suffered serious injuries.
