Dramatic You Tube Video of the West Metro Fire Rescue team freeing a large beautiful buck that had gotten stuck in Lakewood Reservoir in Colorado. I guess the poor thing was nearly frozen when they pulled him out, and had to be warmed up in the back of a Lakewood Animal Control van before he could be released back into the wild. The rescue was captured by kind hearted Dominick Von Pichl who was walking by the reservoir with his wife, and was concerned that the large deer didn't have the strength to free itself as hypothermia set in.
The West Metro Fire Rescue team used the incident as a learning opportunity to emphasize the dangers of walking on frozen lakes and other bodies of water. You never know how thick the ice is, and it's certainly not a chance I'm willing to take!
