Lexington police officer saves deer from swimming pool

In today’s Feel Good Story Of The Day, a Lexington police officer responded to a home in Fayette County where a deer had fallen into a backyard swimming pool in freezing cold temperatures. The officer, Officer Flannery, with the help of someone else in the area, pulled the deer from the water by its legs.

I won’t spoil the ending for you, but make sure your sound is up.

    Has happened three times to me. Thousands of dollars damage each time. Have a vinyl liner pool and their hooves are razor sharp

    The homeowners should be cited and fined for not having a fence around their pool. A pool is considered an attractive nuisance and must be fenced in according to Kentucky laws.

      Exactly. It wasn’t installed in accordance with Kentucky Residential Code. They’re lucky it was a deer and not a kid.

      Both of you are spot on.

    Am I the only one wondering why there’s water in the pool this time of year?

      A lot of people use salt water instead of chlorine now so you don’t have to drain it in the cold months.
