Massachusetts animal control free deer from hammock
UPI News Service, 02/11/2016
A pair of animal control employees in Massachusetts rescued a deer that had become tangled in an backyard hammock.
Video shared to Facebook by Waltham Animal Control showed the buck running around a tree attempting to free its horns from the hammock's netting.
"Myself and Katie, from Arlington Animal control helped cut this buck loose in Belmont," one of the rescuers wrote. "Please remember to bring in hammocks and netting when not using them! Many animals end up getting tangled and injured in them."
The deer was eventually released and did not appear to have sustained any injuries.
