COLORADO SPRINGS, CO. (KPLR) - A Colorado Springs man woke up to a surprising sight Sunday morning, a deer in his swimming pool.  My dogs were barking like crazy and I couldn't get them to knock it off. I got up on the top of my deck and I looked down and there was an eight-point buck in the middle of my swimming pool."

Smith says he quickly realized the deer was trapped, so he called 911 for help.

Police had no luck getting the deer out either.

Firefighters had to build a ramp to lure the deer out.

After about ten minutes and a little coaxing, the deer used the ramp and got away.

And it was costly for Smith, the deer damaged the pool and tore the cover.  He says it will cost about $2,500 to fix.
