Firefighters pull deer from partially frozen pond in Newtown

There was an animal rescue off Taunton Lake Road in Newtown Friday morning.  Firefighters responded to a call from a bus driver who said they thought a dog was on the ice, about 100 yards from shore.  Police reported that a deer had gone through the ice.  The Newtown Bee reports that a pair of Newtown Hook & Ladder firefighters, in cold water gear and tethered by ropes, went out onto the partially frozen pond to reach the deer. They pulled the animal from the water and bring it to shore.  Newtown Underwater Search And Rescue responded, with backup from Hawleyville and Dodgingtown fire companies and Newtown Animal Control.
