Photos from Alaska - 10/8/10 Rescuing 4 deer

A foursome of young bucks fell upon some good luck Sunday as they were pulled from the icy waters of Stephens Passage by a group of locals out to enjoy the last few days of recent sunshine. These good Samaritans describe their experience as "one of those defining moments in life."



A group of four juvenile Sitka black-tailed deer. They swam right toward the boat, then, they started to circle the boat.


They were looking up and looked like they needed help.The typically skittish and absolutely wild animals came willingly and once on the boat, collapsed with exhaustion. They were shivering. Four Sitka black-tailed bucks pulled from the waters of Stephens Passage Sunday recover on the back of Tom Satre's 62-foot charter vessel, the Alaska Quest.


All deer were transported to Taku Harbor and witnesses reported they all recovered from what appeared to be exhaustion and a bit of hypothermia. Once the group reached the dock, the first to be pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back, then leapt into the waters of the harbor and swam to shore. He quickly disappeared into the forest. Two others followed suit, after a bit of prodding and assistance from the group.




One of the four Sitka black-tailed bucks pulled from the waters of Stephens Passage Sunday is seen being transported via wheelbarrow by Tom Satre after reaching Taku Harbor. Witnesses reported all the deer recovered fully from what appeared to be exhaustion and a bit of hypothermia.

Four bucks in all were rescued.

that's pretty neat --as we know animals sometimes do strange things --just glad they "accepted assistance"
Free ride on a charter boat. LOL
They were probably a bit shocky from the cold water and hypothermia, along with exhaustion. They would have most likely died, had they not been rescued.

neat :)
Bless their hearts. They trusted the humans to help them; to have compassion for them. And the humans gave!
