It was a baby deer.
Freeley told CBS News, “Storm just plunged into the water and started swimming out to the fawn, grabbed it by the neck, and started swimming to shore”.
Freeley took a video of the deer’s rescue and posted it on Facebook. “What a morning … Can’t believe this,” he wrote. “Storm just saved this baby deer”.

As the Facebook video shows, Storm carried the fawn to dry land and helped it to safety. Apparently weakened, you can see the deer down on its belly as Storm licks and nudges the animal with his nose.
“When Storm lay down next to it and started nudging it and pawing it that was really special,” Freeley told WCBS Newsradio 880.
