I think it goes without saying that we have a large amount of deer here in Ocean County, New Jersey and we have more and more deer in our neighborhoods.

I recently did another "wildlife" article about an increase in FOX here in the area and it goes hand in hand with this story and how a deer had to be rescued in Lacey Township.

When I head out to work at 4 am I see a bunch of deer along my way from Southern Ocean County to Toms River. I see deer in my yard, along the local roads, the Garden State Parkway, and even on highways like Route 37. Basically, we see deer everywhere and it's no wonder they are finding themselves getting into trouble.

This story comes from Lacey Township, Ocean County on Thursday. According to NEWS12 authorities had to be called in to help rescue a deer that found itself in a bad situation.

According to the NEWS12 article, Lacey Township Dive Team Chief David Streno said it happens and deer have been known to wander into lagoons and of course, that is not a good thing. Members of the Dive Team were able to coax the deer from out of the water.

Have YOU ever seen deer in area lagoons? that has to be a scary sight. Deer can swim but cold water temps and tiring can cause problems for the deer.

Thanks to the Lacey Township first responders for their work and assistance ...way to go :)


LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
