Logan Lake RCMP rescue deer from potentially dirty death
The Logan Lake RCMP rescued a deer that was stuck in mud at Mamette Lake on Sunday.
Cpl. Kathleen Thain found the deer in distress at about 3 p.m. that afternoon.
“It is unknown how long the deer had been stuck, but it was very tired when first observed,” she said. “
She found help at the nearby Rey Creek Ranch when Gord Garthwaite and his crew agreed to provide assistance.
He managed to use his ranching knowledge, and tied a rope around the deer.
“Garthwaite and his crew were able to pull the deer from the thick mud and water to safety,” Thain explained. “Once the deer received a good face was, it was left to rest, recover and return to the wild.”
