MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

During a routine training mission boat crew members from the U.S. Coast Guard Station Manistee rescued a pregnant deer Wednesday morning.

The deer was trapped between rocks near Harbor Village in northwest Michigan.

The crew worked together to get her loose before she became hypothermic or died from exhaustion.

She is now recovering with some minor scrapes. 

After making sure the deer was in good condition the crew continued with their training, the Coast Guard said.

“Knowing how much people love animals and want to help them, we decided to rescue the deer before a person without rescue training could get hurt,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Adrian Ledesma, a member of the rescue crew. “It was also a good case for our newer members to be a part of.”
