Father, Son Rescue Two Deer
A couple of good Samaritans came to the rescue of a real life Bambi and her sister. It started with a Facebook post requesting help for the deer stranded on a lake in Minnesota. A father and son headed out with some rope, a GoPro camera and a lot of love. Together, they were able to pull the deer to shore and they stayed until the deer were strong enough to return to the forest.
