A deer spotted swimming in Marlborough Sounds

April 9, 2018

A deer has been spotted making a 400 metre swim across the Marlborough Sounds over the weekend.

Colin Aitchison was out on a friend’s boat in the Queen Charlotte Sound on Saturday when they spotted the stag off Arapawa Island.

“We thought it was a log at first, but obviously when we got a bit closer it was moving quite fast…and we saw that it was a stag, and that was definitely a first for us.”

Mr Aitchison said the stag swam about 400 metres before it lept back onto land and disappeared into the bush.
