A deer trapped in the river by Ski Hill Road caught a very lucky break! Stephanie and Thomas Christopher saw it struggling while driving and decided to help. They did the right thing by not only trying to offer assistance, but calling the professionals! With help from an OPP officer and a conservation officer from the MNR, the deer was saved. Global News said, "They eventually reached a culvert along Ski Hill Road and lifted the deer to shore. Stephanie retrieved blankets while a man hauling corn stopped and provided the animal with a 'hat-full' of corn kernels." A team effort, way to go!
