Police Rescue Deer from Icy Pond

/

by NJSP

Earlier today, Troopers Ricardo Rodriguez and Joshua Smart helped rescue a fawn that had fallen through ice on a frozen pond.

When the Troopers arrived at the pond in Harmony Township, they observed the deer struggling to get its rear legs out of the water.

Also on scene were Harmony Township Firefighters Kyle McKenna and John Latourette. The volunteer firemen boarded a small metal boat and slowly made their way to the helpless doe.


After the firemen successfully loaded the deer into the boat, Troopers Rodriguez and Smart used a rope to pull the boat to safety!

The deer was placed on dry land and thankfully no one was injured during the rescue!
