The Chesterfield Police Department posted a video to Twitter showing officers using an animal catch pole to keep the deer still while attempting to cut through the ropes of the hammock in a resident's yard.

The video shows the deer run away, apparently uninjured.

"They don't teach 'How to rescue a deer tangled up in a backyard hammock' at the Police Academy," the department tweeted. "Thanks to the Officers and Citizens on scene, this deer lived to run another day."
