DOG SAVES BABY DEER

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

PORT JEF­FER­SON, N.Y. — A dog that saw a baby deer in dan­ger of drown­ing in New York jumped in and dragged it to shore.

The res­cue in Long Is­land Sound was caught on video by his owner Mark Free­ley.

He tells WCBS-TV (http://cb­sloc.al/2uyz1m7) that he was tak­ing the English golden re­triever named Storm on a walk Sun­day morn­ing when Storm “just plunged into the water and started swim­ming out to the fawn, grabbed it by the neck, and started swim­ming to shore.”

Video shows Storm push­ing the deer to shore, ly­ing next to the fawn and nudg­ing it with his nose.

Free­ley says an­i­mal res­cuers ar­rived and the deer ran back into the water.

They used a rope to pull the fawn back in.
