    Oh, deer!

    Six deer in Salt Lake City got into a bind when they became trapped on thin ice.

    Joe Timber, a Utah Parks and Recreations officer, suited up and attached himself to 500-feet of rope for the daring rescue.

    A wildlife officer risks his own life to help save four dear caught on thin ice in Utah.

    He managed to pull four of the deer to safety, albeit exhausted.

    The two remaining deer were in too dangerous a place to be rescued. They are being watched, in hopes that they wander in to solid ground on their own.
