Young deer gives up on swimming to Superior from Brighton Beach
Rich Koivisto can't figure out where the yearling whitetail thought it was going when it began swimming across Lake Superior.
Koivisto and his wife, Bette, had stopped by Brighton Beach at the east end of Duluth on May 24 and noticed the young deer swimming toward Wisconsin.
"The deer was about 50 feet out there," said Koivisto, of Duluth. "He went out to where we could barely see his ears. Then he headed northeast."
