Things definitely took a turn for the bizarre when four fishermen went out into the Long Island Sound on a fishing trip. Their goal was sharks, but they came back with a completely different catch altogether when they found a fully grown deer swimming six miles from shore. It was clearly in serious trouble. "You could see it shivering. It was barely staying afloat, kind of just going in circles," fisherman Rob Kurdy said.
They leaped to action to save the life of the animal that was so clearly in over its head. Though they started by towing it with rope, things became even more problematic as they got closer to land. Fortunately, these fishermen-turned-heroes weren’t afraid to get up close and personal. If you think this sounds like a whale of a tale, watch this video all the way to the end! It certainly has a heartwarming "fin-ish."
