Icy water rescue saves buck from frozen fate

Black Friday around 5:30p.m. was looking very dark for a buck who wandered across a frozen lake neighorhood of Kissing Camels in Colorado Springs.

When wildlife officer Cassidy English with Colorado Parks and Wildlife arrived on-scene the buck was deep in the lake so she called the Colorado Springs Fire Department for back-up.

A firefigher put on a wet suit and was able to break the ice and help lead the buck to shore and safety.

The plan worked but officers say the rescue was dangerous work.

  1. The buck is now hanging in some lucky hunter’s garage, waiting to be cut up into steaks, roasts, stew meat, etc.
