LOS ANGELES (AP) - A small deer learned very quickly that it could swim after falling into a backyard swimming pool in Los Angeles.

KCBS-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/1vi7Hl7 ) the little buck jumped a 7-foot fence in Encino on Saturday and got caught up in the pool’s cover.

The homeowner and two neighbors were able to pull the cover off and the deer swam and flailed around while trying to climb out.

After several attempts the deer was able to wriggle his way back onto dry land.

A spokeswoman for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife says the deer was tranquilized and transported to Malibu Creek State Park, where it was released.
