Deputy Carries Frightened Deer Off Road [VIDEO]
We've all heard the phrase "You looked like a deer caught in the headlights." Check out this video of a young deer really caught in the headlights of a police car. Deputy Ryan Swartz from Michigan actually carries this stunned deer of the road!
WENM -TV reported:
When Swartz first arrived, we're told he thought it was a decoy, but quickly learned it was indeed a live deer.
"I figured as I walked up to it, it would just run off the road, and it just stood still. It wasn't moving at all. So I went up and I pet it and I was thinking that would get the deer off the road," said Swartz.
But the deer didn't budge. So the deputy had to make a decision on how to get the deer off the roadway before another accident occurred.
He gets the deer to the side of the road.
"That's where it stood for about 10 minutes. I went up and I pet the deer behind its ears and it got its wits back together and it took off running," said Swartz.
This is one of the sweetest things I've ever seen! Right up there with people stopping their cars on a busy road to let a family of ducks cross safely. This deputy deserves a raise!
