Fawn Stranded In Lake Get's Rescued But It Gets Even Better

While enjoying a fun day out on the Folsom Lake, Kenny Croyle was with his wife and in-laws when they came across something that didn't look right.  

Croyle told FOX40, "Another boat had their flag up and we didn't really see anybody in the water. So we just slowed down just to be careful. Didn't know exactly what was going on."

The other boat had just rescued a fawn that was struggling to stay afloat in the deep part of the lake, far from shore. 

Croyle continued, "And they yelled at us and let us know there was another one. The mom, the doe, was heading for shore but she was quite a ways away."

That's when Croyle and his family came across the second fawn in the lake. The poor struggling fawn was confused and looking for its mom. Croyle said, "So, I put my life jacket on, jumped in after it and picked it up. As soon as I picked it up, it kind of went limp. It was very relieved I think, very tired."

Unsure if the fawn would survive, they wrapped the scared fawn in a towel and helped it calm down. 

When they got closer to shore, Croyle and his family spotted the mother on the hillside, looking down trying to find her babies. Both boats were able to safely reunite the fawns with their mother. 

Watch the incredible footage of the rescue below! Thank you to Croyle, his family, and the occupants of the other boat!

Photographer Captures Beautiful Every Day Moments Of The Urban Deer In The Streets Of Nara, Japan

The Sika deer In Nara, Japan are not restricted to forests or parks, but rather mingle in the urban center much like humans. Although viewed as a burden sometimes, the deer population is Nara is sacred and protected by law. A Japanese Photograoherr Yoko Ishii, captures the deer in everyday moments across the city, from collectively passing down a major street, to pausing to feed their young below a stoplight.

Ishii was inspired to photograph the ways the animals interact with common city infrastructure after observing a pair of deer paused at an intersection in 2011, and especially loves photographing them while the city is at its most bare. "These picturesque moments when early in the morning the deer can be found standing in the middle of desolate intersections, not bound by man's borders and laws, yet inhabiting a man-made city is fascinating and inspiring," she explains in a statement about her ongoing series, "Beyond The Borders". 

Ishii published a book of her photography titled Dear Deer in 2015, and will be included in this year's Auckland Festival of Photography in New Zealand later on this year. You can see more of her recent work on her website and Facebook.

An Amazing video that was uploaded by Mark Freeley, shows his dog saving a baby deer from drowning. He Said that as he was walking his two dogs in the morning, Storm and Sara, he noticed a fawn in the water struggling to get to shore. The next thing he knew "Storm just plunged into the water and started swimming out to the fawn, grabbed it by the neck and started swimming back to shore."

It can be shown in the video, that once Storm hit the shore, he put the deer down and laid down next to it. The very prod owner was even surprised by the good deed his dog had done. 

Unfortunately, when experts arrived and with the commotion of the dogs and so many people, the poor deer got spooked again and ran back into the water. This time further out. After struggling for around 8 minutes, the men were able to rescue her once again. The fawn didn't have any serious injuries but did suffer from ticks and a small eye injury. The young animal is currently being cared for at an area wildlife agency until it is in better shape. 

Freeley posted the video of Storm's heroic rescue on Facebook Sunday morning and had already had more than 13k likes and just over 61k shares.
