KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. - A young buck rescued from the ice on a remote Oregon lake spent the night in a barn before being released back into the wild, Oregon State Police said.

The rescue effort started December 12 when a concerned landowner called state police to report a deer trapped on the ice 75 yards out on the ice on Spring Lake in southern Klamath County.

Two Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists borrowed a boat from the landowner.

Using the boat, they crossed the ice and reached the deer. The biologists brought the exhausted buck back to shore.
