Was lucky enough to spend some time at a cottage on a beautiful lake in Ontario recently. I looked up from my breakfast one rainy morning to see a brown blob swimming out from the bay. I thought “Hmm, that’s an awfully big bird”. When I got the binoculars on it, it was quite clear that it was not a bird at all!
At one point the deer appeared to turn in towards land. But then it seemed to change its mind and it headed out across the lake – about a mile to the other side. I guess hormones can make them do crazy things. I hope he made it and that the females were impressed.
Deer are quite competent swimmers, and he should have made it without much trouble.
