Slygh and his cute, unlikely passenger.
Yesterday, Duluth's WDIO TV broadcast amazing footage of Cotton-area resident Jeff Slygh using a canoe to save a deer from the freezing waters of St. Louis County's Nichols Lake.

A HOAX?: Donna the Deer Lady seriously believes deer crossing signs are like crosswalks for deer [AUDIO]

Slygh said a neighbor told him on Sunday morning about a deer that had wandered onto the lake and fallen through the ice, and he decided to take action. Thankfully, a bystander was able to film the ensuing chain of events.

Without further ado, here's WDIO's report:



Kinda makes you wanna grab your nearest deer and take a canoe trip, doesn't it?

Dude kills deer, then saves one. All of a sudden he's a hero?

Aren't you a bundle of happiness wrapped in rainbows? Clearly you are missing the compassion gene. Can we just put you down? I mean, come on, circle of life and all.

@Tasha, Yes you truly are a douche. The circle of life is this guy saving the deer from a long  suffering death. And hopefully people will be inspired by the video to help another animal etc. in the future.

This might be hard for an "either or" simpleton such as yourself to understand. But a person can be a responsible hunter AND a compassionate human being.
