Hovercraft Deer Rescue of the Day: VIDEO


A father and son spotted two deer stranded on the ice covered Albert Lea Lake in Minnesota and headed out in their hovercraft to rescue them. Now that's Minnesota N-ice.

  2. Suppose if these two men did their good deed naked there'd be more comments?

  6. Random acts of kindness to the weak and defenseless. Major good-karma points for those big-hearted gentlemen. The irony is that there are probably others who will want to hunt and kill those deer.

  11. Again @Jamal49—totally agree.

    This kind of thing always make me cry. Hope the deer are OK. They were so trusting… Humans can be good from time to time.

  12. Begs the question of how they got out there in the first place. Apparently almost all the great lakes are now frozen over.
