This guy uses his excavator every day during his normal job, but it got a bit of a different use this day! After seeing a baby deer struggling to get out of some sticky mud, excavator operator Bill Davis decided to take action and attempt a rescue.
Found a baby black tail deer stuck in some deep mud! Couldn’t stand seeing it struggling. – Bill Davis
First he attempts to dig the little guy out by clearing mud from around it, but the deer still couldn’t break free. Eventually Bill decided it was time to try the full scoop. He gently eases the bucket under the mud around the deer and slowly lifts it up unharmed. Then, swinging around, he slides the deer out onto safe ground!
The deer seemed a little bit stunned, but mostly uninjured. Rather than immediately running off, it stuck around and looked at it’s rescuers as if to say thanks. And thanks is what Bill deserves.
