Yahoo!  A struggling deer stranded on thin ice in Canada has been rescued by a quick-thinking helicopter pilot.The stricken animal and her fawn were trapped in Antigonish Harbour, Nova Scotia, with the mother slipping and sliding each time she tried to move.Rescuers would have fallen through the brittle salt-water ice had they launched a conventional rescue attempt.Experienced pilot David Farrell devised a cunning plan to blow the deer across the ice to safety using the wind created by his helicopter's rotor blades. 

BTW...
