Firefighters in Georgia rescued an athletic deer that became entangled in a goal net at a soccer complex.
The Savannah Fire Department said a crew from Station 7 responded Sunday to the Jennifer Ross Soccer Complex on a report of a deer in distress.
They arrived to find the deer’s antlers and neck were entangled in a goal net.
“Firefighters used trauma sheers, wire cutters and a knife to carefully cut away the cords and extricate the buck,” the department said in a Facebook post.
The deer appeared to be exhausted from trying to free itself, but uninjured.
“Once free, it wobbled a bit from exhaustion, then slowly trotted away,” the post said.
