New Canaan firefighters on Saturday afternoon helped rescue a deer that had fallen into a partially frozen pond.
Shortly after 12:45 p.m. and with the New Canaan Police Department’s Animal Control unit on scene, officials say, firefighters used a rope to assist the deer out of a pond that straddles two properties at the end of Salem Road—a cul-de-sac off of Route 106 just above Canoe Hill.
“It had broken through the ice,” New Canaan Fire Department Lt. Donny Gesualdi said.
Exhausted and cold after it had gotten out, firefighters helped the animal to dry land and turned the matter over to Animal Control, Gesualdi said.
Below is a map showing where the rescue took place.
