Caught on Camera: Deer trapped in Hurricane Sandy’s surf

MONMOUTH, NJ (WTVR) – Worried bystanders jumped into action to try and help save a deer stuck in the wild surf at a Monmouth County beach in New Jersey as Hurricane Sandy loomed Sunday afternoon.

The deer was spotted attempting the navigate the breaking surf, but a barrier of rocks was keeping it from getting back to the beach. People tried approaching the animal to help it escape, but the frightened creature ran away every time.

Animal control and humane society responded and tranquilized the deer, which was found with a broken leg. They’re hoping to nurse it back to help.
