The hapless critter became caught on the thin ice, unable to move.
For these two Utah anglers, what should have been relaxing fishing has turned into animal rescue. Brensen Jackson and his best friend were fishing under the ice in Pangitch Lake when they came across a fawn that needed help.
The unfortunate creature is stuck on thin ice, unable to move. But Jackson, a wilderness firefighter, risked his life to save the poor man.
Although everything seems to be clear in the film, the fisherman had no idea what to expect. Because the ice was thin and the deer were scared, he could easily hurt them, making the situation worse.
“I looked over there and thought to myself. “Sorry, it’s a deer!” Of course we have to save him,” Jackson told 2KUTV.
“So we just started going there, and at some point his boot really went through a crack in the ice.”
When the two men approached the deer, he could not stand and seemed tired. However, when they got there, they had no idea how it would react.
But as he carefully picked him up, Jackson tried to calm him down. However, the rescue did not end there, as the ice began to break under their weight.
Luckily, they all made it to shore, and as soon as they did, Jackson threw the one-year-old deer to the ground, where he got lost in the desert. Thanks to these two warriors, the mission was accomplished.
