Whitetail Deer in Kansas Struggle to Escape Flooding Near Highway 400

A group of whitetail deer in danger of drowning fight the recent Kansas floods and swim for their lives.

Whitetail deer are well known as strong swimmers, but this group was in for the fight of its life.

The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office posted this video of several deer struggling to get free of the horrible current and find their way out of the raging flood waters.

At least nine different deer can be seen fighting the strength of the current, and some of them look like they could never make it.

Deer are survivors, but we can only hope for the best. According to a post, this happened in the river near the U.S. 400 bypass. It’s not known if any of the animals perished.

On a happier note, the Sheriff’s Office said, as of December 29, 2015 “US 166 east of Baxter Springs is now open! All major highways in Cherokee County are clear and open now. Some county and city streets remain flooded.”
