Typically when we see an excavator operator coming to the rescue it’s for a fellow operator. But in the video below, rather than assisting a loader or another excavator struggling in deep mud, this operator is coming to the aid of a young deer.

That is a nasty muck to be sure and it’s unlikely the deer would have made it out without the operator’s help.

Though relieved to be back on dry ground, the deer is clearly confused as to how it made it out before hopping off into the woods.
