Boaters rescue ‘exhausted’ deer found swimming in ocean, Massachusetts cops say


Share post:

Two men boating off the Massachusetts coast spotted “something frantically splashing,” police reported.

They found an antlerless deer “in distress” swimming in the ocean and pulled it to safety aboard their boat at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30, Cohasset police said in a news release.

They called Cohasset police and a natural resources officer met them at the boat ramp to check on the deer, police said.

“It was not injured, just exhausted from the afternoon swim,” police wrote. After a rest, the deer returned to the wild.

A video posted with the release on Facebook shows the deer bounding away into the woods.

Cohasset is about 20 miles southeast of Boston.
