Exhausted deer pulled out to sea rescued by passing fishermen

Footage shows the moment an exhausted deer was rescued by a passing boat after getting pulled out to sea.

The animal had hoped to reach a nearby island to search for food but ended up being lost in the ocean amid choppy currents in Chonburi province, Thailand.

After hours of wading aimlessly, fishermen happened to pass by the area and spotted the tired deer.

It tried to swim away but the boat followed behind while the fishermen attempted to calm it down.

Soon after, the deer was pulled out of the water and was later seen resting on the lap of one of its rescuers.
