Doe rescued from Mississippi River recovering - RESCUED via HELICOPTER Deer trapped on ice floe in Mississippi River

Doe rescued from Mississippi River recovering
The adult white-tailed deer rescued after being stranded on treacherous Mississippi River ice for two days shows significant signs of recovering from her life-threatening ordeal.
Since her deliverance by brave volunteers, the deer has been cared for lovingly by certified animal rescuers Rodney and Pam Starr of Centralia.
Their nurturing care has paid off -- the doe now can stand on all four legs, albeit briefly.
"When she came to us, she could use her front legs but not her back ones," Rodney Starr said. "Then, it reversed, and she could use her back legs but not her front ones."
The deer and a younger doe presumed to be her daughter were rescued from the slippery, ice-covered river some 100 yards from shore and a quarter-mile east of Stanka Lane, off the Great River Road (Illinois Route 100), on Dec. 17.
Once the older deer was in their care, the Starrs consulted with local veterinarians, who expressed concern that the doe, which the Starrs affectionately have named Noel, had suffered a spinal injury, based on her inability to coordinate movement.
The hair on the deer's hind legs appeared to have been frozen to the ice for two days.
