A dear friend, Wendy, from my running club forwarded this to all our members. Here are her words, “Hi all … I think we all want to be of help and need to be helped at times .. it’s hard to figue out when and how. It came together for this lucky group. Thought I’d share this really cool moment in time …. Enjoy!”

The best day of fishin’  ever!!!

Four young Sitka black-tailed bucks fell upon good luck Sunday as they were pulled from the icy waters of Stephens Passage, Alaska by a group of locals on Tom Satre’s 62-foot charter vessel.  Four juvenile Sitka black-tailed deer swam directly  toward the boat..
Once the deer  reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at the  humans on board.  Clearly, the bucks were distressed. With help, the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals came  willingly onto the boat.  Once onboard, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering.

Here the rescued bucks rest on the back of Tom Satre’s boat, the Alaska Quest. All four deer were  transported to Taku Harbour.  Once the group reached the dock,  the first buck that had been pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back, then leapt into the Harbour, swam to shore, and  disappeared into the forest. After a bit of prodding and assistance  from the humans, two others followed suit, but  one

deer needed more help.  Here he is being transported by Tom Satre 

Tom, Anna and Tim Satre help the last of the  ”button” bucks to its feet. They did not know how long the deer had  been in the icy waters or if there had been others who did not survive.  The good Samaritans (humans)  describe their experience as “one of those defining moments in  life.”  I sure it was for the deer, as  wel

This touched me and thought I’d share too,
