Deer stuck in frozen lake saved by officer with lasso
The animal had fallen through thin ice in Wyoming.
A deer has been saved by two modern-day cowboys who lassoed it out of a frozen lake.
Two sheriff’s deputies responded to a call from the public after the deer was spotted in trouble having fallen through thin ice and into the lake in Pinedale, Wyoming.
Mr Hays first tied one end of one of the ropes to a tree to help him test if the ice was safe to walk on, then used it to catch the deer and lift it from the water, pulling it to safety.
The whole incident was caught on video from Mr Peterson’s bodycam.
“It was the right people in the right place at the right time,” he said.
