WHAT ARE THE ODDS?

What are the odds of someone seeing this 12+ Point Buck about to lose his life falling through the ice in terribly frigid waters in northern Minnesota? How horrifying. The Buck was stuck in the ice, but I can't imagine the pain it must have been feeling not being able to free itself.

HOW MANY POINTS CAN YOU COUNT?

According to the article, it sounds like the deer will survive.  I'm trying to count the points! Is it an 18-point buck? What do you think? All I can say is, whoever called the Thief River Falls Volunteer Fire Department, you deserve a huge thank you from animal lovers everywhere; and to the Fire department, who could have easily said no to this rescue...they didn't. Thank you for your time and dedication to saving this beautiful boy.
