Helicopter Blows Stranded Deer To Safety
When a deer was trapped on thin ice, helicopter pilot David Farrel knew what to do.
Jan Waugh spotted a deer and her fawn stranded on the ice over Antigonish Harbour in Nova Scotia. He called the Department of Natural Resources (DNR),
which sent a crew who decided the ice was too thin to risk sending anyone out to get the deer.
A few hours later, Waugh spotted a DNR helicopter near the deer. The fawn ran to shore and the chopper came down close to the mother.
“The wash, because the ice was so smooth…the wash was so powerful that it actually started to push the deer,” says Waugh.
He says the deer eventually stopped struggling and went with the flow, while a DNR officer and the helicopter pilot David Farrel directed the animal to shore.
With some human help over the last few feet, the deer was able to take off on her own at the shoreline.
