MENTOR, Ohio (WJW) — A local photographer captured a group of deer taking a swim in Lake Erie Wednesday morning.
Kozar says that before leaving, he decided to walk out to the Fairport Harbor West Breakwater Lighthouse.
“While walking along the beach I came across a couple of sets of deer tracks that went into the water. I just happened to look out in the lake and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Four deer swimming out into Lake Erie!” he shared on his Facebook page.
According to Kozar, the deer swam so far out that he could barely see them.
He says he watched them swim for about 15 minutes before they turned around and headed back towards shore.
“I just sat there on the log taking pictures of them. I’m happy I was able to get some decent shots of those deer swimming way out there,” he said. “It’s probably something I’ll never get the chance to see again.”
