'Get Ready For A Ride, Bambi' Says Man Saving Deer Stuck On Ice (VIDEO)

When James and his father, Douglas, were told two deer were stranded on the frozen-over Albert Lea Lake in Minnesota, they wasted no time coming to save the day.

We have no idea how the deer managed to get in the middle of the lake, but it's possible that they had been stuck for days, and were exhausted.

Lucky for them, the men had a pretty inventive way of getting them out of their slippery situation. Watch as James and Douglas tie rope around the deer's legs and gently drag them across the ice to safety -- while filming the whole thing on a GoPro of course.

When you watch this you might say, "dawwww," or rather "doeeeeee"
