Deer Impaled on Fence is Saved (Video)

A YouTube video has caught the eye of many as it demonstrates the rescue of a deer from a fence.  Thank goodness the fence was not very sharp.  Once freed, the deer scooted away to safety.  Even though the animal is pretty vocal with the two men who are trying to lift him up from his prison, I think he is most grateful!  MSNBC also describes the rescue.

I'm very thankful the men were able to save the deer....but kinda surprised that they weren't sure how to do it. Usually, men are the problem solvers. Not this time!

thanx for saving the deer. and of course, it was a woman who took charge and had to direct the men in what to do.

I always find it interesting how little humans actually know about the animals we share our homes/yards with. I am grateful the men rescued the deer, it just took the direction of the woman behind the camera to guide their efforts.....

Of course anyone with a heart would have helped this poor animal as did these people - thank you for being so kind! How can anyone walk away from any animal in pain or distress - they cannot be called a "human being". We are put on this planet to be kind to all living creatures, so how can some people not carry this out! Thank you once again to these kind people who saved this deer from hurting himself and no doubt his ultimate horrible death if no-one came to his rescue.

Thanks to the two men that got the deer off the fence, if they had not rescued him, he would have hurt himself or maybe even died there. This would have been a horrible death. Thanks again!!!!
