Juanjo swims to the deer before it is recovered to dry land with the assistance of onlookers with ropes on the bank.
But one hunting website, the Club de Caza, asked: “Where are the ecologists to praise the actions?”
They say: “This is what country people, hunters, do.”
The person recording the video comments: “This is a gentleman of the field, a field of good ones”.
After the hunters helped the deer to recover and get back on its feet it was released back to the mountains.
