Elk NetworkVideo: Deer Fight South Dakota Floodwaters, Swim to Shore

General | May 31, 2019

It’s a good thing deer know how to swim. A man driving across a bridge over a flood-swollen river in South Dakota captured video of four deer fighting to keep from being swept downstream.

It happened in Lyman County which is in the south-central portions of South Dakota.

About 225 miles to the west, a late spring snowstorm dumped more than two feet of snow in the Black Hills forcing several waterways out of their banks and causing the National Weather Service to issue a number of flood warnings.
