Props to this man who saved this poor deer stranded on a frozen reservoir … with the daring rescue caught on video.
Gil Lencour was heading home for a lunch break Tuesday in Wisconsin Rapids when he noticed the deer struggling in the middle of a frozen reservoir. The quick-thinking dude zoomed home to grab a leash and called a buddy for an assist.
Gil says when he got to the deer it was clear the leash wouldn’t do the trick. his backup plan was the ol’ heave ho … pushing the deer as it glided to solid ground. The deer suffers from bad manners — it did not turn around to say “Thanks” before scampering into the woods.
Gil’s buddy, John Moss, began recording after it became apparent John had the situation under control.
