Rumble / Everyday Heroes - A family rescued a little deer who almost froze to death at their door during a snowstorm in Brussels, Wisconsin on February 24. Penny Paye Price said the young buck approached her home and looked through a window at her family before collapsing. He was rescued and brought inside for warmth. He was named Giannis and fed him water, corn and apple sauce. “I, of course, had to run out and carry him in as my family watched with disbelief,” Price said on Facebook at the time. “We’ve got him covered with warm towels and giving him water. Not sure what’s going to come of this. We named him Giannis.” A staff member from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources later took Giannis into their care. They warned that deer were susceptible to becoming weak and ill during cold winters and had low fat stores. Credit: Penny Paye Price via Storyful
