Beware the dangers of swimming in canals in hot weather!

Children are frequently warned about the dangers of swimming in canals and quarries in the hot weather….looks like someone needs to get the message out there to the local wildlife!

Not to be outdone by his wife’s rescue of Luciano The Cat last week, MR Johnson was out walking Sherlock (their dog) alongside the canal in Worsley and came across a deer that had fallen into the canal in an attempt to cool down in the recent hot weather. To Sherlock’s immense dismay (he hates water!), Mr Johnson jumped into the canal to try and help the deer. By steering it towards some nearby canal boats, and with the aid of another couple of onlookers, they managed to get it out of the water and off it scampered without a ‘by your leave’ or ‘a grateful thank you’ to its rescuers…some deers are just plain rude!! Needless to say a very unhappy Sherlock had his walk cut short to accompany a very soggy, slightly ‘wiffy’, owner home!
