CASPER, Wyo. —  Authorities in Sublette County Wyoming say that a stranded deer has been rescued from a pond near the Wyoming community of Daniel.

Sublette County Sheriff’s Office officials say that at approximately 12:45 pm, Tuesday, dispatchers received a call of a deer who had fallen through the ice into a pond.

“Once on scene Deputies found the ice to be too thin to reach the stranded animal directly in a safe manner,” a written statement from the SCSO said Wednesday morning. “[Deputies] then worked together and lassoed the deer and were able to bring the animal back into shore safely.”

The Deer was then taken to the landowner’s blacktop driveway to warm up.

A few hours later deputies reported finding the deer to have moved out of the area on its own.
