Contractors working on the M/V Golden Ray spotted a small deer swimming inside the Environmental Protection Barrier surrounding the wreck on Wednesday evening. The deer was clearly struggling, and swimming between equipment caused a precarious situation. Workers were able to secure a rope around the deer and gently bring it onto the deck of a barge. Once on deck, the deer was wrapped in a blanket to keep it calm. The contractors transported the deer to Jekyll Island, where it was met by local law enforcement and safely released.
