When the heat of summer rears up people aren’t the only ones who enjoy a cool swimming pool.
There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than jumping into the cold water of a swimming pool or local creek. The instant relief from the heat and humidity isn’t felt by just humans, though; sometimes animals see that same opportunity and jump on it as well.
In Pistoia, Italy, a deer with an impressive display of antlers wandered into the backyard of a homeowner with a nice swimming pool. Seizing the chance, he slid on into the water for a quick swim.
According to Il Tirreno, a local news station, the deer became stuck inside the pool during his quick dip. The homeowners had to call local firefighter and wildlife rescuers to come out and give him a helping hand.
They had to sedate the deer before dragging him out of the water and releasing him back into the woods. Hopefully he learned a lesson and will stick to cooling off in lakes or creeks from now on.
