Cute Overload :D
People, you won’t believe this. These deer got stuck on a Minnesota lake. Watch the hoomins rescue ’em with this keen hovercraft.
Spotted on ViralViral Videos.
Awesome! James and Douglas Kennison, who did this of their own accord after seeing a picture of one stuck deer on Facebook, definitely deserve a ‘Men of Cute Overload Calendar’ entry. Also…. those really are keen hovercraft….
Yes. And yes.
Wonderful! Just. Wonderful.
To resurface the ice before a game they bring out the Zamdoeni.
I was waiting for one of the deer to go sliding right back out, like that hilarious pool video. Deer are cute, but they’re duuuumb.
Yeah, just look how far out onto the lake they got!
I’m seriously wondering how they managed that!
I want to be pulled along the ice behind a hovercraft! Pleeeeeeeeeeese?
That’s exactly what I thought!!
Funny. I don’t remember any hovercraft in that scene where Bambi goes sliding on the ice.
i remember a helicopter doing the same thing once … rescuers just hovered above and used the downwash to push the deer to shore
yeah, me too!
Well gee whiz, I was ok until the very end when he waved goodbye.. snf… now I’m all misty. Sigh. Definitely cute men of CO !!
Serious men of co
There is definitely NO shortage of the men of CO!
Gonna need more than that
forklift to move the Men of CO
calendar. It keeps getting
bigger and bigger, bless it.
speaking of calendars is there a 2014 CO calendar this year – ive been looking for it
No CO calendar this year apparently.
However I am part of a CO fan consortium pushing for a CO Cute Men coffee table book. Would any of you care to join us?
We’ve all recently purchased reinforcement legs for our aforementioned coffee tables. It’s gonna be a biggie!
Yes, I’ll join in! I WANT A CO CUTE MEN COFFEE TABLE BOOK!!!!
OH NOES! I have two of them on my wish list this year. I am so disappoint! I have one sitting on my vanity to help remind me to take my thyroid pills. What will I do nao?!
Those Kennison boys? They ROCK!!! I almost lost it when the one guy waved bye-bye to the deer. This story realllllly warms my heart.
My hovercraft is full of eels!
How did they get there in the first place? Did they walk on the ice and then fell down at the same time?
Probably hit the ice at a dead run (running from a coyote or, at this time a year, a hunter) and skidded that far.
I would hazard a guess that they were running from predators, and got so far out on the ice that they were too exhausted to return.
And since it’s Northern Minnesota, my guess is they were running from humans.
Albert Lea is in far southern MN.
That is to say, I suspect they CAN walk/push their way a short way along the ice, but they tired themselves out. And if they had stayed out on the ice to rest they likely would have froze their deerieres off.
The same thing happened to a calf on my parents’ farm. The little calf had gotten onto a large patch of ice and was not able to get off it. I had to push his furry behind all the way off with his momma watching me. The calf ran to his momma for some warm milk :)
The image in my mind calf butt pushing roflol
Deer 1: “Don’t worry guys, I saw this on a movie once!”
Deer 2: (3 hours later) “Saw this on a movie eh? BLeh!”
The deer don’t even look particularly perturbed by the ride. I’m no expert in deer body language, but the ear-flick when the hovercraft begins towing that one along seems more like “huh, how peculiar” than “WTF HELP” to me.
Ouch! Doing the splits had to hurt!
Go out on the ice, you said. It’ll be fun, you said.
*wipes tears from eyes*
So awesome! How did they end up so far out on the ice?
as i watched i thought ouch cold belly’s. “now then how about a bucket of hot chocolate to warm up our belly’s and then we will be on our way.”
such kind people and doing a great job because the deer were not at all frighten of the people. well done guys.
