Deer will take to water to flee from danger if possible. When a hunter’s gunshot spooks this family of deer, a young fawn swims out too far deep into this lake. The terrified fawn cry out for its mother. Luckily, these boaters were on hand. While deer are generally great swimmers, this inexperienced fawn began to suffer from exhaustion halfway across the lake. and it was up to these folks to rescue the deer. Do not attempt something like this. Tampering with wildlife can be very dangerous both for you and the wild animals.
