“It only had one leg through the fence, so I helped get the rest of him through it,” Benz said. “I think it was a newborn too because it was tiny.”
The deer quickly disappeared over the hill and appeared not to be injured. This all unfolded about three miles west of Standard. Benz is in his third year working towards an engineering degree.
“I was out here last summer as a student, and then this year I was lucky enough I didn’t have to go to the Calgary office,” he said.
He works primarily in operations, and says next summer he’ll for sure be in the office. Benz grew up on a farm and he said he was used to working closely with animals, so helping the deer never phased him.
