Dog saves fawn from rushing water

A dog in Long Island, New York jumped into the Long Island Sound, the body of water between CT and Long Island, to rescue a young deer stuck in the water.

Mark Freeley, of East Setauket, was walking with his dog Storm when the pooch noticed something in the water in Port Jefferson Harbor.

Freeley posted the video of Storm carrying the fawn to land on his Facebook page and has received an overwhelming response.

Freeley said after the initial rescue, the deer ran back into the water, presumably frightened by Storm and the ordeal.

The group wrote about its workers; "The deer got spooked and jumped back into the water".

Freeley immediately called experts, who scared the fawn back into the water when they arrived at the beach. That began rescue round two.

Floridia swam out to retrieve the fawn, which he said is about 3 months old.

After about eight minutes, Freeley and a member of Strong Island Rescue were able to once again save the deer for a second time.

"I think it was a great thing for its instincts to kick in, to go out there and rescue it", Floridia said of Storm.

The fawn, which was covered in ticks and suffered an eye injury, should make a full recovery.

The vet took the fawn to her auto, and the animal is being treated.
