Wild deer rescued from drowning by boaters.

Tom Satre and his family were cruising aboard Tom's boat the Alaska Quest in Taku Inlet in Alaska when they saw four deer swimming towards their charter boat.

The juvenile Sitka black-tail deer were obviously in distress and cold and tired battling 2 foot white-capped waves.

There was a strong wind in the Inlet and the deer were cold and tired. They were desperately looking for somewhere to go, but they were still around 1.2 miles (2 km) from shore. Tom and his family could see that the deer were close to drowning and decided to help.

"They swam right toward the boat," Tom said. "Then they started to circle the boat. They were looking up like they needed help." Tom knew they had to get the deer out of the water if they were to survive. But how to get them onboard?

3. It is so wonderful

to see people doing something like this instead of seeing some fool standing over a dead animal that they just had to kill.
