Deer Rescued from Snake River
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Idaho fish and game officers not only rescued some deer trapped in a diversion of the Snake River in southern Idaho, they also warmed up an adult doe and her fawn by wrapping them in blankets with warm water bottles placed around them.
The fawn also spent some time enjoying the heater in the cab of a truck.
KTVB reports that it took two officers more than five hours last weekend to get the deer out and warm them up.
A Fish and Game post said the deer had been in the water for several hours as air temperatures hovered around freezing.
Another fawn couldn't be saved.
Two other deer eventually wandered into the brush.
