HAMPTON (AP) – Two men using paddleboards helped with the rescue of two deer who wandered into the ocean off of Hampton Beach.

Hampton police said the deer had been overwhelmed by the stress of the cold water and collapsed. They were seen at about 10 a.m. Friday.

The two onlookers, Eric Tidman and Mathew Roy, of Massachusetts, corralled and temporarily restrained the deer until two Fish and Game Department conservation officers were able to take them out of the ocean.

The animals were taken to an area where they could be released. Biologist Patrick Tate said they were tired but in good health.
