We can’t fault this deer for trying to sneak in a little outdoor exercise.
On hot and humid Tuesday morning, a New Jersey deer tried his best to escape the heat with a swim in a local backyard pool. Per a report from NBC New York, the deer in question also opted to squeeze in some cardio by taking few “laps” around the pool.
After getting a call from the pool owner, the Hamilton Police Department rushed to the scene of the crime and interrupted the deer’s training by helping it out of the water. According to a Facebook post from the department, the deer “then decided to take in some sun and relax for a few minutes” by the pool.
After soaking up some rays, this loose cannon took off into the woods never to be seen again. This deer truly lived its best life, and even burned some calories, too. I could not be more motivated to try and do the same (though I probably won’t).
