TOLEDO, Ohio — Two Toledo police officers are being commended for their water rescue of a young deer last month.
On Dec. 7, Officers Fischer and Ervin were sent out on a call of a deer stuck in a swimming pool. When the pair arrived, they found a young doe up to its withers in the frigid water of an above-ground pool.
Ervin tried to capture the deer with a rope, but the doe retreated further into the pool.
According to a Facebook post from TPD, "seeing no other option, Officer Fischer jumped into the pool, grabbed the deer and pulled it to safety with the help of Officer Ervin and a bystander."
Nice work, officers!
