Stranded Deer (on Ice) Rescue - Greene County
On Nov. 15, ECO Anthony Glorioso was contacted by a concerned citizen regarding a deer stranded on a rock in the middle of a frozen pond in the town of Jewett.
The deer had attempted to leave the island but was unable to swim through the ice and returned to the rock island.
ECO Glorioso and the citizen used a rowboat to break a path out to the stranded deer, and as they approached, the deer jumped into the water. From the rowboat, ECO Glorioso used a catch pole to capture and hold the deer while the officer and the man quickly moved the boat back to shore.
The deer was released and quickly ran off into the woods in good health.
