Two people out enjoying the water near Boston came across and rescued a deer struggling to swim in the ocean.
Animals are precious beings placed on earth by the same God who created man and the entire universe. Because they are part of the Lord's creation, they are worthy and deserving of love, care, kindness and respect. However, sometimes, similar to humans, they can get themselves into trouble and need a helping hand.
Around 1:30 p.m., on Aug. 30, two men were boating off the coast of Massachusetts when they spotted something odd, according to the Cohasset Police Department.
Police report that the gentlemen noticed "something frantically splashing in the water." The two men then went on to the odd sight. What they found has been described as an "antlerless deer in distress."
Understanding that the animal was out of its element and experiencing problems in the water, the two men got to work. Police state that the men worked to secure and then pulled the obviously scared animal onto their water vessel, according to The Miami Herald.
Once the deer was safely on board their boat, the men reached out to the Cohasset Police Department. They notified them of the situation with the deer. Soon after that call, a natural resource officer arrived on the scene.
The Animal Was Not Injured, But Extremely Exhausted From Its Afternoon Dip
The deer was then examined for any possible injuries. Thankfully, police report that the animal was not injured but was tired from its afternoon dip in the ocean.
Following its rescue and examination, the animal was monitored for a period of time, police stated. However, the video police included in their social media post shows the wild animal running down a trail and eventually disappearing into the woods.
Thank God these two men were in the area. They showed enough concern and ultimately helped the creature who was in a frightening situation.
"And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good." – Genesis 1:21
