Hey man I watched that breaking news "rescue" live for fricking 45 mins. They could have save that deer life but they keep blocking his path. The deer is afraid of you dummy... Get behind him!

Dude that area is so over populated and has been forever that losing 1 deer is not going to matter.

I look at it this way, its a good training scenario.

if things go south and conditions degrade where its getting increasingly risky they can call off the rescue attempt with little to no backlash, afterall it is a deer, theyve been falling thru the ice for eons before people were here to rescue them and will continue to do so after people are gone as well.

if this were a person fallen thru theres sort of a obligation to continue the rescue despite the risks.

the firefighters get time to practice the techniques and usage of the gear they would use in an ice rescue like this, something that probably doesnt happen enough to stay 100% familiar with it all

Ah yes, spending thousands of dollars of public money to rescue one damn wild animal that would have died anyway in its wild habitat.
Remind me again why Chicagoland is having a budget crisis?

You better be nice to America or we will bring democracy to your country.

tc youre a fucking moron its wonderful you can sit there from your little chair in a nice warm room trying to monday night quarterback a water rescue. Nice to know you are certified as a rescue swimmer might come in handy for you one day. Before you throw out your advice on what should have been done or what could have been done have actual experience in the situation.

In the end who gives a shit about that dear but on the other hand atleast we know those same guys would go out there at anytime they are called no matter if its a human, dog, cat, maybe even you.

Once again tc and goneandraping prove why rescuing animals is worth more then rescuing ungrateful humans like you. No wonder most firefighters would rather save a dog then a person if they had a choice

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
