Deer rescue

Amherstburg residents try to save drowning deer.

Dozens of residents and boaters in hovercraft- style vessels staged a dramatic rescue operation Thursday afternoon when as many as seven deer wandered onto thin ice in the Detroit River and plunged into the frigid waters.Dozens of residents lined the shoreline, offering what aid they could and pleading for the animals to make it to safety.

Boaters managed to pluck one five-point buck out of the water and ferried him to shore, where efforts to warm the frozen animal were underway late Thursday afternoon.
