Adult Deer Drowns On Mara Lake

Sicamous RCMP say that Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue was called last Friday, on a report of a full-size deer that had fallen through the ice on Mara Lake.

It happened near Swansea Point, with the deer becoming stuck in the ice as it tried to cross the lake.

Police say that four search staff took to the waters, but that the amount of ice slowed their travel, and that the deer eventually drowned.
