At about 6 p.m., Deputy Travis Demuth and Sgt. Andrew Hale were dispatched to 4040 S. Main Street Road, Batavia, the Meadowbrook Golf Course, for a report of a doe stuck in a pond.

It turns out there are several ponds on the property and after checking nearly all of them, Hale was able to clarify that the caller was on the second hole when he reported the stuck doe.

A course manager located the doe and suggested it wasn't stuck but had been left at that location by the doe's mother while mother was feeding. Hale wanted to check the doe's health and started to walk into the pond when the doe bolted. The doe was clearly fine. It ran off into the woods.

Maybe the "caller" should have approached the deer with helium balloons and RIP cards in hand.

Surely the doe would've scurried away, squealing, "I'm alive. I'm alive."
