TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Connecticut Teen Rescues Deer From Water On Fishing Trip

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Connecticut Teen Rescues Deer From Water On Fishing Trip

Here’s an animal rescue story that you don’t hear about every day. We have a lot of deer in the northeast but you usually you see them while driving on The Merritt, 95, or in your backyard… but in the water?!

That’s what this 19-year-old Fairfield prep grad came across recently. Eryk Wenziak works for a Norwalk and Stamford charter boat service. He was on a fishing trip with some others when they came across a struggling deer in the water off the coast of Rye, New York. They drove the boat over to the animal and were able to bring it up on the boat, then back to safety in the woods on the mainland. Thankfully the deer seemed okay.

The whole rescue was caught on video. You watch it along with Eryk’s interview with News 12 here
