SUBLETTE COUNTY, Wyoming -- A deer that got stuck in an iced-over pond in Wyoming was rescued by rope-toting sheriff's deputies on Tuesday, authorities said.

Sublette County Sheriff's Deputies Justin Hays and Joshua Peterson managed to corral the frigid, evasive deer near Daniel, Wyo., using ranch rope typically deployed to get livestock off of roads.

They lassoed a loop around the animal and dragged it up onto the icy surface, according to the Sublette County Sheriff's Office. The wrangling was captured on video.

Then the deputies brought the deer to nearby asphalt to help it warm up. The animal vanished after the deputies left the area, officials said.

Sgt. Travis Bingham said Hays is an adept cowboy, according to The Associated Press.
