Authorities rescued two lost naked men from the woods of Australia on Sunday, according to a New South Wales (NSW) Police statement.

At about 6:00 p.m. Sunday, the men called for help in bushland after visiting a remote beach, according to the statement.

Police Rescue, assisted by the State Emergency Service, NSW Ambulance and Polair, found a 30-year-old man carrying a backpack on the walking track near Lady Wakehurst Drive, according to the report. Police Rescue also found a partially clothed 49-year-old man.

The men were startled by deer, which caused them to run into the woods.

Authorities fined the men the equivalent of $750 for breaching a public health order that banned people in Sydney from traveling outside the area. Sydney is under lockdown as it battles the Delta variant. (RELATED: ‘Designed To Frighten You’: DeSantis Downplays New Variant Label, Advises Vaccination)

“It’s difficult to legislate against idiots,” NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said Monday at a press conference, BBC reported. “Clearly putting people at risk by leaving home without a proper reason, and I think then on top of that, getting lost in the national park and diverting important resources away from the health operation, I think they should be embarrassed.”
