Authorities shared some incredible photos after they spotted three deer swimming in Beltrami County, Minnesota, and helped guide them to the nearest shore.

According to the sheriff's office, Deputy Roberts was on patrol when he spotted the three deer swimming in the water.

The group was "quite a distance from shore and making little progress getting back to land," the sheriff's office said in a Facebook post, so the deputy maneuvered his boat to guide them to shore.
