Police in New Jersey responded to the call of an apparently overheated deer found swimming laps at a resident’s backyard pool, according to United Press International.

The Township of Hamilton Police Department said in a Facebook post Tuesday that officers responded to a home where a resident walked outside to find a “deer doing laps” in their swimming pool.

“The little cutie decided it was a bit too humid out today and was looking for some relief!” the post said.

UPI reported officers fished the deer out of the water. The doe relaxed next to officers for a few minutes before running back into the woods.
