GOLDEN, CO – It’s video that you just have to see. It’s pretty much the cutest thing ever.

A deer in Colorado got stuck on some ice. His spindly little legs couldn’t gain traction. A group of people stood by watching the critter try to move and helplessly fall to the frozen surface.

Finally a certified ice rescuer saved the day, by lassoing some rope around the deer’s antlers and dragging him to safety.

When the buck got back on land, he stopped, as if to say thanks and then took off.
