MARK HOPPUS IS A SAINT! On Wednesday (June 24), the blink-182 frontman shared a video on Instagram of a deer paddling in the middle of Idaho's Redfish Lake and told the story of how he saved its life.
"Found a deer in the MIDDLE OF THE LAKE today," he wrote. "No idea how it got there. It was panicked, shivering, panting, tired, swimming in circles. I got on the swim step and we pulled up alongside it and I was able to get my arms around the bottom of its neck and tried to pull it up but it was too heavy. So for twenty minutes we slowly shepherded this deer across the lake, like herding goats in Twilight Princess, to the nearest shore. We got there and the deer stumbled out of the water, looked back at us for a few seconds, and bounded off into the woods. We saved a deer today!!"

Hoppus and his family have been quarantining in Idaho, and when he's not saving local wildlife from drowning, the bassist/singer has been working on new blink music. Earlier this month, he shared a photo of a remote writing session with producer John Feldmann.
