WATCH: Maine Police Rescue a Deer From In-Ground Swimming Pool
You know the old phrase 'not all heroes wear capes'? Well, that remains true to this day. In fact, some heroes wear Maine law enforcement badges.
According to WABI TV 5, the Old Town Police Department responded to a unique 911 call on Monday. As Old Town resident Janice Clark was looking out her window and noticed a deer had gotten into her shrubs and was munching away.
Clark went outside in an attempt to scare the deer away. While she was successful in scaring the deer away from her shrubs, she was unsuccessful in getting the deer out of her yard.
As the deer ran out of sight, Janice heard a splash and realized the deer had fallen into her in-ground swimming pool. Because there was a solar cover over the pool, the wayward deer was incapable of swimming to either side to get out. Janice immediately called 911.
An officer from the Old Town Police Department quickly arrived and was able to get the deer out of the pool. A camera connected to the home's surveillance system captured all the action. Check out out here.
