BRIEF: Video captures helicopter deer rescue
Mar 01, 2013 (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Cameras were rolling when a helicopter rescued a deer and her fawn who struggled for hours to get their footing on ice in Antigonish Harbour, Nova Scotia.
The video was shot by Ian Waugh, a retired Canadian biologist, and acquired by the news service Reuters. The ice was too thin to walk on, so the Department of Natural Resources contacted a helicopter pilot who used the downdraft of the helicopter's rotor to blow the deer to shore, Reuters reported.
