    Default Father and son rescue two deer trapped on a frozen lake

    In a scene straight from the film Bambi, these flailing deer had to be saved after wandering on to a frozen lake.
    Two men came to the animals’ rescue on the frozen 160-metre deep lake in southern Norway.
    Ivar Skregelid and his son Eivind braved the ice to edge their way across Sirdal Lake.


    On thin ice: The two curious deer wander on to the frozen in Southern Norway


    Slippery: One deer falls over on the ice - making it easy prey for predators


    Rescue mission: Ivar Skregelid and his son Eivind brave the ice to save the deer

    They were carrying rope in case they needed to make an emergency rescue if the ice cracked and they also had a rifle.
    Ivar said: ‘Deer sometimes do stray onto the ice not realising it is actually a lake. It is a challenge to save them before a predator such as a fox comes along.
    ‘We brought the rifle in case either of the animals had been wounded and had to be put out of its misery.


    Saved: The two men - one equipped with a rifle in case of emergencies - grab one of the deer


    Challenge: The men drag the deer to safety, off the frozen 160-metre deep Sirdal Lake

    ‘Fortunately, there was no need to use the rifle this time. Apart from a small wound to one of the deer, they were unharmed.
    The deer clearly did not share the same friendship as Bambi and Thumper the rabbit in the Disney film, however.
    ‘When we bought them to the shore, they went their separate ways into the countryside,’ Ivar said.
    Ivar is a hydrologist at the nearby Sira-Kvina hydropower station, where his son also works.

    Nice to see a story where a deer is rescued and not shot between the eyes.

    ^^^Agree. I was worried they would be seen as easy prey.

    I had to call to have a deer killed last week because someone had hit it and both back legs were broken. Ugh. It's horrible so I am glad to see some saved for once.

    That breaks my heart. Did you call animal control? One of my biggest concerns is hitting a dear while driving and it suffering.

    In this instance, I would definitely shoot it. It's more humane.
