What many people thought was a dead dog caught up in a pump wire and rope from a siphon hose in a ditch in Bridger turned out to a be a deer. Bridger Police Chief Mike Buechler confirmed that the deer had a broken leg and had been in the water for sometime.
“It didn’t have a plastic bag round it,” he said, "it had turned purple. Also because it’s head was under water it was difficult to determine what it was at first.”
