Deer rescued from icy lake in dramatic video

Friday, January 11, 2013

Colorado wildlife officials with help from Coors brewery employees have rescued a large mule deer stranded on an icy lake near Golden.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife district spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said Thursday the animal wandered onto the frozen lake or was chased by a predator and appeared to be in good condition. She said there was no indication the animal broke through the ice and it was not struggling.

Rescuers lassoed the animal and were able to drag it across the lake to safety.
