    Idiots

    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknew...9Ug&ocid=wispr

    If you see a deer SWIMMING why would you assume it is in difficulties? Did they think it had fallen in or something? caught by the tide when in for a paddle. I've seen a herd of deer swimming from the mainland to skye you occasionally see them in lochs - cattle can swim as well. I just can't credit someone seeing an animal swimming would assume it's doing it by accident.

    Re: Idiots

    Last summer, here in Brooklyn, NY, we had two deer swim from Staten Island to Coney Island, where they preceded to go to Nathan's Famous for some hot dogs. Well, they did run loose in the street. And how did they come to be on Staten Island? They swam (swum?) from New Jersey. Of course deer swim, what a dope.

    I've a theory about boats. You've heard of force multipliers? Boats are idiocy multipliers. No matter how stupid someone is on land, they are more stupid in a boat.

    Re: Idiots

    Go ahead, call me an idiot because I didn't know deer/cattle and whatever swim. Never crossed my mind, until now.

    But then why not? I knew elephants swim.

    That is something I was completely unaware of.

    What never watched any westerns where they drive the cattle across a river?

    Wouldn't call you that it may be something beyond your ken but I bet you wouldn't assume a deer in the sea had gone for a paddle and got into difficulties which is what these guys seem to have done. All migratory animals can swim - how else do they cross rivers. Never really thought about it before -I live on an island where the furthest you can get from the sea is seventy miles and I had to google to find that out. I've seen deer swimming quite a few times. I can drive from the north Atlantic to the north sea in a couple of hours depending on the traffic

    Must be odd living in the middle of a continent.

    I would be as bold to say ALL animals could/would swim at a pinch, even so called water hating cats.

    They have rivers and lakes in the middle of America.

    Oh that is sooooo true. I bear witness to it often.

    Kangaroos can swim, you often see them in the surf

    Oh yea, I'm a big fan of Rawhide (TV series)

    Sometimes the rivers are swollen so they would have to wait so the beeves could walk across, so I thought.

    Actually, I spent most of my life living in Southern California 25 miles from the ocean. semi-arid with no rivers and not near lakes. The only reason I knew elephants could swim was that I read at one time they lived on the Channel Islands off the coast of CA.

    I never been that big of a wildlife person.

    Didn't know that. Mind you I had a lot of misconceptions about Australia when young. When I first heard that all Aussie vehicles had roo catchers on the front I pictured a bloke with a lassoo and an expression of wild enthusiasm...

    Mind you, thinking about it, just about any animal we think of as a land animal can swim, even if they don't often. Trying to think of exceptions….giraffes?

    ... don't know if you ever heard this? https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...BA69&FORM=VIRE
