This dopey deer got itself stranded in 200 yards off shore in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Poland, but luckily firemen out there are prepared for this kind of thing.
The firemen took a boat and a flashlight out to sea after nightfall to find the floating on a runaway piece of ice.
The local Mayor said deer do this quite often after getting scared by dogs and jumping onto the ice.
Hopefully this deer learned its lesson.

Animal activists in Poland are accusing a company of keeping animals in the cold for a live action nativity scene.
Renata Cieslik of the Animal Protection Guard in Slupsk, Poland said the llamas, donkeys, sheep and Shetland ponies in the scene are overly exposed to damp and cold, which is dangerous for their health.
The owner of the company who arranged the animals for the nativity scene,Miroslaw Wawrowski, says he has a permission from the city's veterinarian and keeps the animals in wooden crates at night.
Last time we checked a wooden crate wasn't all that warm, especially considering an arctic chill has killed more than two dozen people in the European country earlier in the month.
While most the world is hoping for a white Christmas, these animals just want to stay warm.
