Colorado wildlife officials with help from Coors employees rescued a large mule deer stranded on an icy lake near the Golden brewery.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife district spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill says the animal wandered onto the frozen lake or was chased by a predator and appeared to be in good condition. She says there was no indication the deer broke through the ice and it was not struggling.

Rescuers lassoed it and were able to drag it across the lake to safety.
