photoBaby deer saved from icy river in Romania

A baby deer was saved last Friday, February 9, from an icy river in Campulung Moldovenesc, Suceava county.

Around 10:00, a few people passing by the river saw the baby deer fighting to get out of the cold water. They immediately called the authorities, and a team of local firefighters saved the animal.

“The poor baby deer couldn’t get out by itself due to the steep banks, with a height difference of nearly 3 meters,” the firefighters said.

The animal, which was not injured, was handed over to the members of the County Hunters Association. They will take it to a safe place.
