NEW JERSEY (FOX5NY) - A deer took to a backyard pool in Hamilton, New Jersey likely to cool off from the heat and humidity, but not before swimming a few laps and relaxing poolside.
The Hamilton Township Police Department shared photos of the deer Tuesday on its Facebook page.
"This little cutie decided that it was a bit too humid out today and was looking for some relief! Officers Thumhart, Bakker and McCarthy were able to use the deer rescue training they learned in the academy (not really) to safely remove the deer from the pool. It then decided to take in some sun and relax for a few minutes, before running back into the woods to spread the word! What will tomorrow morning bring.....?"
The temperature reached the low 90s in Hamilton on Tuesday.
