HARRINGTON, Maine - A Maine lobsterman has hauled in an unusual catch five miles off the coast. Ren Dorr said he was setting traps when he saw a young deer Monday morning. He said the deer had given up swimming and was being carried farther offshore.
He and his crew hauled the 100-pound buck aboard.
Having a wild animal in a confined space could be trouble. But Dorr told the Bangor Daily News that the deer was so tuckered out that he "laid right down like a dog.''
He said it took a half-hour to return to Harrington, where the deer was set free.
