Default Sad

Had the motorcycle out for a 200 mile loop today. Crossed a lake and saw an interesting and sad sight. The pics are hard to see, they are from my cell phone. But the buck was in the middle of the lake bobbing up and down. Some said he'd been out there for several hours. Local FD said they couldn't help and the game warden was watching from the shore.
The lake it was in is a resevoir for Akron Ohio I guess which is the reason they couldn't take a boat out. Sounds like a lame excuse to me. Hate to see an animal suffer like this.

The deer is the black spot in the ice right in the center of the picture. Follow thr broken ice trail and you'll see it. It looked like a decent 8 pointer. Like I said, cell phone picture, not the best.

Ya. It was treading water trying to get up onto the ice. You'd see it crawl up on, and then the ice would break and it'd be in the water again.

Had this been in my town, I woulda had the boat out and roped it to drag to shore just like you said. The locals said it was Akron's water supply though and that's why no one could help. I woulda just dropped a boat in and done it.

So if it was a human they still couldn't rescue it also because it a reservoir ? Is that the line of reasoning...?

I don't know anything about the place but I'm sure they help a human.
