Firefighters helped save a life on Sunday, of a deer, stuck on the ice.
The incident took place around 11 a.m. when members of the Stevenson department received a call about a deer stuck on the ice on Lake Zoar in Monroe, the fire department said on Facebook.
The deer, who was about 500 feet out, or halfway across the lake when rescuers arrived on the scene, had fallen and could not get back up after trying repeatedly. Concerned bystanders called the Monroe police, who then contacted the Stevenson Fire Department.
During the rescue, one firefighter hooked a tether and pulled his way out, once he was enough the deer free itself and ran out of the water.
The department said saving the deer was a great training exercise.
Anyone who sees an animal stuck on the ice is asked to call 911.
