Deer Four bucks rescued from water

Comment: The photos look real to me. What do you think?

Just when you think everyone is oblivious to the world around them, beautiful
things happen.

Four young Sitka black-tailed bucks fell upon good luck Sunday as they were
pulled from the icy waters of Stephens Passage, Alaska by a group of locals
on Tom Satre's 62-foot charter vessel. Four juvenile Sitka black-tailed deer
swam directly toward the boat.



Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking
directly at the humans on board. Clearly, the bucks were distressed. With
help, the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals came willingly onto
the boat. Once onboard, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering.



Here the rescued bucks rest on the back of Tom Satre's boat, the Alaska
Quest. All four deer were transported to Taku Harbor . Once the group
reached the dock, the first buck that had been pulled from the water hopped
onto the dock, looked back, then leapt into the harbor, swam to shore, and
disappeared into the forest. After a bit of prodding and assistance from the
humans, two others followed suit, but one deer needed more help. Here he
is being transported by Tom Satre.





Tom, Anna and Tim Satre help the last of the "button" bucks to its feet.
They did not know how long the deer had been in the icy waters or if there
had been others who did not survive. The good Samaritans (humans)
describe their experience as "one of those defining moments in life." I sure
it was for the deer, as well.

I'm not gonna tell you what I thought this thread was about.

Maybe you could change it to four deer rescued, though.

This statement makes no sense in the context of the rest of the forward. Unless the author lives in a world where deer circling your boat like sharks is so commonplace that nobody notices them anymore.

That's pretty cool.

I still want to see a picture of a guy diving in to grab some change, which is what I expected when I clicked the thread.
