TOLEDO (WTVG) - An amazing rescue in Toledo involving a deer trapped in a swimming pool, and it was all caught on camera. A homeowner in South Toledo found the deer trapped in the empty pool Monday.

The doe was unable to get out because she couldn't get any traction on the slippery pool bottom. Laura Zitzelberger is the Director of Operations at Nature's Nursery. She brought carpet to the scene and worked to devise a plan to get the deer out of the pool. After several attempts, the deer was finally able to get enough traction to get out.

This story is certainly another great example of what Nature's Nursery does to help wild animals in our community.

To see the full video of the rescue, we've posted a link to the Nature's Nursery Facebook page.
